California quartet Of Mice & Men will release its next EP, “Bloom,” on May 28, 2021, via SharpTone Records. This follows “Timeless,” released in February, in a series of EPs that eventually will comprise the band’s next album. A video for the “Bloom” title track can be seen below.
“‘Bloom’ is a song about grieving the death of a family member,” singer and bassist Aaron Pauley said. “It’s about understanding, through that loss, that grief is not only love in its most visceral and wildest form, but that it’s also the ultimate price we pay to experience such love. To know profound grief is to have known profound love. Nothing and no one lasts forever. Love isn’t a bouquet of plastic flowers; it’s watching the petals fall.”
As with the “Timeless” EP, the “Bloom” EP artwork was created by Derek Hess.
