Of Mice & Men have announced plans to release a new EP next month. The new outing is titled Timeless and will arrive on February 26 via SharpTone Records, with whom the band has signed a record deal. The track "Obselete" can be heard now via this animated video (inspired by the EP's Derek Hess-drawn artwork): "There's an old idiom about what you're supposed to do when life gives you lemons," explains singer Aaron Pauley of the EP. "Sadly, to disappoint, this wasn't exactly that. We started writing this EP shortly before the initial lockdowns in spring of 2020, before we knew that our world was about to become a radically different place. A lot of these songs were born from a place of wondering how we'd fit into 2020 and beyond, both as adults in our 30s as well as a band that's a decade into our existence." Regarding the new deal with SharpTone, Pauley had this to say: "It's pretty exciting to be working with a new label. We still have a great relationship with our previous label — it was just time to shake things up, and after conversations and meetings with various labels, we felt that our vision for the future of OM&M matched most closely with SharpTone's. Working with Shawn and the team has been incredibly rewarding, and we're all super excited with what's to come!"
