After spending the summer recording their third album, Of Mice & Men have wrapped up tracking, and the record is in the process of being mixed. Check out a studio update video above.

"This new record encompasses everything we have ever released in our short career," said frontman Austin Carlile. "Every track on the album was written with our fans in mind. I wanted to make every line come from a real life experience or struggle that I've overcome. It's raw, and I really believe our fans will see that I tore myself apart to present them with the most real sound and message we've come out with to date."

The forthcoming album, due out early next year on Rise Records, was the first for new bassist/clean vocalist Aaron Pauley. "I couldn't be happier to have joined Of Mice & Men," Pauley said. "As a musician, it's what you always want in a band; a bunch of amazingly talented, open-minded musicians who believe in taking the time and putting in the blood sweat and tears to make great songs, and who aren't afraid of making something different. I feel like I've found my true musical home with this band, and I can't wait for the world to hear this album."

The yet untitled album was recorded at House of Loud in New Jersey and produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin).
