November 22 – Cleveland – Peabody’s Of Mice & Men is a metalcore/post-hardcore band from Costa Mesa, California, United States formed in 2009 by Austin Carlile and Jaxin Hall. Their current line-up consists of Austin Carlile (ex. Attack Attack!), Shayley Bourget (ex. Covette), Phil Manansala, Valentino Arteaga (ex. Lower Definition) and Alan Ashby. After recording “Someday Came Suddenly” and touring some with Attack Attack!, Austin was kicked out of the band. After that, Austin decided to start something new on his own. He asked one of his best friends, Jaxin Hall from New Zealand, to be his partner in crime and a part of whatever he did next. The two got their friends in Though She Wrote and Miss May I, to help them write and record the song “Seven Thousand Miles for What?” they had been working on. The next day they posted it and made a myspace. Five days later the inevitable happened. They joined up with the two people that had stood by them since day one. Rise and Artery were always considered family, and after hearing the song, they accepted us into theirs. Solidifying the line up with Valentino Arteaga from Lower Definition on drums, Shayley Bourget from Chapters and Covette on guitar and vocals, and Phil Manansala from A Static Lullaby on guitar, Of Mice & Men released their debut album on March 9, 2010 and have hit the road nonstop!
