Of Mice and Men announce Bristol show as part of huge 2018 UK and European tourPosted on: 19 Dec 2017
American Metalcore rockers Of Mice and Men announced a new string of tour dates today, with eight UK and Ireland shows planned, including a stop off at Bristol's O2 Academy on Saturday 21st April 2018. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10am on Friday 22nd December.
Since forming in 2009, Of Mice and Men have attracted huge interest, with a Billboard Rock & Independent Album Chart number one and hitting number 4 on the genre-spanning Top 200 Album Chart. As well as this, the band have shared stages with rock heavyweights Metallica, Linkin Park and Queens of the Stone Age. They've played hundreds of packed-out shows around the world and released three studio albums to widespread acclaim, gaining thousands of new fans in the process.
The band's latest album, Cold World, was well received by fans and the music press, but the 2018 tour will coincide with a release of a new studio album - their fourth studio offering, Defy. Frontman Austin Carlile has had to step down from his responsibilities as a member of the band due to illness, but fans are apparently in agreement that Of Mice and Men are as good as ever right now despite the loss.
Their April 2018 show marks the second time the band have played at Bristol's O2 Academy, the first having been back in 2015. The Bristol leg is the first on British soil in 2018, and the tour will see Of Mice and Men go on to perform in London, Manchester and Birmingham among others.
Tickets for Of Mice and Men at Bristol's O2 Academy on Saturday 21st April 2018 go on sale at 10am on Friday 22nd December 2018. Once on sale, tickets can be found here. For more information, or to follow ticket updates, visit the band's official website or check out their Facebook page.
