Of Mice & Men has shared the title track of its upcoming seventh album, “Echo,” which will be released Dec. 3, 2021, via SharpTone Records.
“‘Echo’ is a song about one’s growing sensitivity to the transient nature of life, and one’s awareness to the similarities between the current human experience and human experiences of the past,” bassist/vocalist Aaron Pauley said.
The new album comprises the previously issued “Timeless” and “Bloom” EPs, along with the new and final “Ad Infinitum” EP. The EP will be released on vinyl in April 2022.

The Southern California-based quartet used its time spent in the 2020 lockdown, which was the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, in a productive way. The band recorded all of the music on “Echo” during that time by working remotely via Zoom and sharing files. The band members had not been in the same room together since February 2020 and the start of the global shutdown.
The album was entirely self-produced by the band, and mixed and mastered by Pauley. “Echo” also includes the band’s take on the Crosby, Stills and Nash track “Helplessly Hoping,” which closes out the release.
As is the case with all previous 2021 music drops, the artwork (pictured below) was designed by artist Derek Hess.
