Despite Of Mice And Men having to cut the set short due to lead singer Austin Carlisle’s condition, this was still an amazing show. Both Crown The Empire and Hands Like Houses had the crowd dancing, singing and screaming like a headline band would. The Pyramid Centre itself was lovely, filled with brilliant staff (including everyone’s favourite dancing security guard). I can’t wait to see these acts again and to attend more shows at the Pyramid Centre.
Of Mice and Men will headline Portsmouth’s Pyramid Centre celebrating the release of their latest album ‘Cold World’.
Possibly their rawest album yet, ‘Cold World’ is the fourth album from Of Mice and Men. The band have had their fair-share of success already; their last album ‘Restoring Force’ reached the Top 5 in the Billboard 200 and they’ve shared the stage with artists like Metallica, Linkin Park and recently, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson. This diverse album jumps from intense metalcore to mainstream rock seamlessly, no doubt attracting new fans to the band from outside the metalcore world.
