Of Mice & Men is an American metalcore band from Costa Mesa, California.The group was founded by Austin Carlile and Jaxin Hall during mid-2009 after Carlile’s departure from Attack Attack!. The name of the band is derived from John Steinbeck’s novel of the same title. Of Mice & Men is an incredible live band. They give so much of themselves and they are very energetic. I saw them at Hove on Monday 30 June 2014.
