The song follows on the footsteps of How To Survive, which came out on the 6th of March.
Mushroom Cloud deals with how bassist/singer Aaron Pauley deals with being trapped in his own head.
“My mind has never been a safe place for me to retreat to, and it’s something I have to consciously deal with on a daily basis,” he said.
Pauley is someone who knows the dangers of letting your thoughts rule your actions.
“Mushroom Cloud is our visceral representation of how it feels to be trapped, how it feels to be cut down by your own inner voice, how it feels to have nowhere to hide, and how it feels to be someone with a mind that’s as dangerous to themselves as the aftermath of an atomic weapon,” he continued.
Of Mice & Men are today starting a tour with Beartooth and will head to our shores for festivals and headline shows across Europe and the UK this summer.
“We’re so excited to be on the road, playing our songs live for our fans, all around the world,” said Pauley.
“Having just recently completed our sixth album, we’re ready to reconnect with our fans face to face and are ready to go places we’ve never been before, delivering our brand of rock and metal to the masses.”
