VIDEO PREMIERE: Of Mice & Men “Broken Generation”

In an exclusive with Billboard, Of Mice & Men premiere their music video for “Broken Generation,” one of several new songs featured on the band’s upcoming reissue Restoring Force: Full Circle. In the video, characters walk around as if in The Matrix, attached to cords that keep them plugged into their technology. You can guess what the metaphor is here, but drummer Tino Arteaga also explains it in the Billboard article:

“The video is a metaphor for the current state of the Internet/technology-obsessed generation. As technology advances, life is lived out through LED screens instead of looking at the beauty in the world around us. This generation needs to begin taking action and ‘unplug’ instead of mindlessly entering data into computers.”

The song itself showcases more of Austin Carlile’s clean vocals than listeners have previously enjoyed, which may give a glimpse of where the band is headed for future recordings. Check out the video above and the rest of the Billboard article and let us know what you think!

Restoring Force: Full Circle will be released via Rise Records on February 24th.
