Below is a copy of the blog posted at: http://omandm.tumblr.com/
So an entire year of touring on our debut album has come to an end and the approaching date of entering the studio to make our next album has come closer and closer, it’s become time for us to decide the kind of album we want to make, for us, as well as for all of you!
With having recently made amends with our original vocalist, Austin Carlile, and not after discussing all of our previous disputes and issues we’ve had with each other (like any other relationship, its not always a friendly exchange of happy words) we’ve collectively decided to return to, or as close to, our original lineup as we could.
Now, we knew this was going to be a huge surprise to everyone and an unexpected turn of events for Of Mice & Men. We had to take into account the response our fans had to our necessity to change screamers in order to continue touring as well as what we felt comfortable with as a group in and out of the studio as well as what our management/label/booking agency team (yes we include them in almost any decision we make, we are a close family, a relationship we are extremely grateful for) felt was a good decision to make for the business aspect while taking into account our personal well being.
To be put simply, both OM&M and Austin want to make another album together because we want give our fans the familiar sound they loved about our first album and build upon that for our follow up. We were willing to put our differences aside and re-establish our friendship and love for making music together. We also want to give you all the chance to hear our first album the way it was intended to be heard since due to prior circumstances…well, that’s all in the past now!
We greatly appreciate all of our fans sticking with us in 2010 and supporting the band with Jerry. We are also very grateful that he stepped up to the plate for us and helped us get through the relentless touring schedule we had. With that being said, we are all extremely excited to be reunited and are going to make another album we are proud of, just like the first and we hope you are too! There’s no behind the scenes anything, no huge fall out or disrespect towards anyone, contrary to what you may think or have read/heard. We just want to make the best album we possibly can and we are confident that together, with the reformed lineup, we will be able to make something amazing.
We have also added a new member, Alan Ashby, who will be playing guitar. Assuming the position of bass will be Shayley which as many of you saw on a couple Warped Tour dates was an easy transition for him. He will, of course, still be singing. Tino is on drums, Phil is on guitar and Austin is screaming. A freshly reformed OM&M for 2011.
Please keep this blog bookmarked and share it with your friends (http://OMandM.tumblr.com) and keep checking back! Every member will be constantly updating this blog with photos, videos, lyric quotes, random studio nonsense…everything you can imagine!! It’s our goal to really let you see how we work, get along and interact with all of you! We will be setting up video chats while we’re here and even doing live streaming video during parts of the recording process to give you an inside look. You can find out about our updates immediately by following us on twitter (http://www.twitter.com/OMandM) and setting up the feed to go directly to your cell phone.
We are really excited for you to see what we are doing, how we do it, and what to expect!
Make sure to come check us out on our headlining tour in March/April as well as on the entire Vans Warped Tour again this summer.
Witness the magic happen!
Shayley, Valentino, Phil, Alan & Austin
Back in OM&M (update)
As most of you have read I’m back in Of Mice & Men. The band contacted me about coming back, and recording another killer album with them a couple weeks back. We decided to put everything behind us and bring it back to when when were all close. So here we are now, day 3 in the studio, recording our second album! Really excited!
Also, I was working on a new project, with my friend Alan Ashby. We never had a name, or other set members so making the change over to OM&M was quite easy. I told the band I wouldn’t leave him behind, so Shay moved to bass, while Alan and Phil will be playing guitar! Alan and I just brought all of our set songs, and ideas/demos from the new project here to the studio and to use with OM&M. Works out pretty well, because I was really stoked for all the new music. But now, it’s just transferring over to OM&M! But you CAN still expect something else non-musically from me soon, keep on the lookout!
I’m really excited about this new change, and the whole band and myself are really excited for you all to hear what we have been working on! We have a HEADLINER, in March/April, and are also playing the entire VANS WARPED TOUR this Summer! So we better see you all there! I’ll post about this again soon, and answer any questions that may arise from it! Thanks so so much for all the love and support, now and especially over the past year when I have been out of the game or healing on a couch haha!
Love to my girl, my dog, my friends, family, fans, and the future.
Stoked to be back! Austin <3

This is a pretty full tour, some good venues in this list. However, I raise my eye brows at the 4/1 date. First Unitarian Church. Is this a legitimate Christian Church? I hope they aren’t going to try saying they’re Christian again…
Anyway, good luck to all of the bands on the tour. Carlile, don’t embarrass anyone this time, okay?

From reading some tweets on various accounts, I’m guessing Jerry Roush (former lead of Sky Eats Airplane and Of Mice & Men), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria), and Ramin Niroomand (guitar/piano for In Fear & Faith) have something cooking.
This is speculation, but it seems legit. I guess we wait for more information.
“Dear @JerryRoush, this a formal notice to bring your attention to the fact that both I, @DannyAfuckingA, and @raminifaf, are indeed, stoked” – Danny
“yo, @DannyAfuckingA and @raminifaf… Stoked for what? haha” – Jerry
“Feels good to have big plans, plenty of projects, and motivation…it’s all about multiple sources of income, get ur hustle on for #2011” – Ram
