AP.net Interview: Of Mice & Men

Posted by - 11:37 AM on 08/15/12
Check out our interview with Of Mice & Men, here. The band will be writing and recording later on this year.
From The InterviewNo, I won't ever waste a single nerve ending on Shayley, will never write a single song about him, will never care -- he is irrelevant to this band, and irrelevant to our lives. We wrote "The Depths" because I was pissed off about life in general, and about people being hateful.

Does that mean he's hateful because people are hateful?
Hmm.

I honestly don't how people like him. Really, his vocals are so monotonous; grating after a time really and his attitude is garbage.

Didn't Shayley leave because of drugs/alcohol problems?

call me when Shayley is back. till then, don't care. I like OM&M (not this new garbage) but every time Austin Carlile opens his mouth it makes it hard for me to not think that he's a huge douchebag.

They have Jamies Elsewhere's vocalist filling his spot at the moment and hes got some pipes. Assuming they are keeping him on for the new album anyway. Wasn't a fan of the newly released songs which kind of sounded like Bring me the Horizon.

Lol Shayley was the only good part of the band and he left because he knew he needed help because of his problems. What a doucher.

shayley wasn't even that good, everyones on crack
so sloppy live n never seemed that into it or interested

why do bands feel the need to rush n release new music whenever members change? The Flood is still awesome, just milk it for another year

I heard about that as well, but I don't think it's gonna do it for me. I found Shayley's vocals to be so unique, pretty much irreplaceable in the band.

Don't count them out just yet even though that interview made Austin come out a major douche he mentioned they are spending a good few months recording this next album. The longest they have done so far. Providing they keep Jamie's Elsewhere's ex vocalist that is. Wasn't a fan of the 4 tracks they released on the new The Flood release.

The deluxe songs on The flood weren't nearly as bad as people make them out. I wouldn't want an album of that sound but I think it was a neat offshoot.
