Defy

Defy by Of Mice & Men

The Orange County metallers have enjoyed a turbulent couple of years. Their touring in support of 2016’s Cold World was stalled by frontman Austin Carlile’s battle with Marfan's Syndrome, a condition that eventually forced him to depart the band to focus on his health.

After Carlile’s departure, the band kept going with bassist Aaron Pauley taking over duties as lead vocalist. Now a foursome, they’ve cemented their new line-up with new LP Defy, an album recorded with My Chemical Romance/Papa Roach producer Howard Benson.
