Of Mice & Men—vocalist/bassist Aaron Pauley, guitarist Alan Ashby, drummer Valentino Arteaga, and guitarist Phil Manansala—has released the music video for “Instincts.” Watch it below.
“We’re stoked to be releasing our music video for ‘Instincts,'”Pauley said. “Filmed during our most recent trips to Australia and Japan, the video showcases the raw intensity that we’ve seen this song bring to crowds all over the world. When the idea for doing a video for the song came up, we collectively decided that the only way we could do it justice was to show this song’s live power, and here it is. Turn it up, and bang your head!”
The song appears on the band’s latest effort, “Defy,” out now through Rise Records. (Read Live Metal’s review.)
“Defy” was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Skillet, The All-American Rejects) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Rise Against).
