Of Mice & Men: "We didn't know if we'd play another show together"

At the start of 2017, Of Mice & Men faced an uncertain future after Austin Carlile sensationally quit the band. We travelled to Vegas to witness the Californians’ comeback show...

It’s early afternoon and we’re winding through the blinking neon monoliths of Las Vegas’s legendary Fremont Street for a photoshoot with Of Mice & Men, one of this decade’s most popular metal bands. Today is a day of firsts. It’s the first day of the first annual Las Rageous music festival – a two-day line-up of rock and metal acts, this year featuring Godsmack and Avenged Sevenfold as the respective headliners. This is also OM&M’s first show after the December, 2016 departure of their wildly beloved frontman, Austin Carlile. As such, with tonight’s set, the band will write the first line of the latest chapter of their story.
