Of Mice & Men Release Fan Assisted 'Real' Video

Of Mice Men

(Metal Hammer) Of Mice & Men have released a video for their track Real. The song comes from their forthcoming fourth album Cold War, which is released on September 9.

The video features members of Of Mice & Men's Ampersand fan club after the band asked them to to answer the question 'What makes you feel real?' Fans were asked to write their answer on white paper and film themselves, before sending the footage for consideration. Seven of the fans were also chosen to take part in the video shoot.

On the Real video, frontman Austin Carlile tells Rolling Stone: "We shot it in Portland, Oregon, during a day off from tour. We asked fans to submit footage holding up poster boards that explain what makes them feel real. The images that pop up mention everything from music to foster care activism to the Marfan's Community to St Jude's hospital.

"And some people wrote stuff like, 'reading,' 'my friends,' 'family.' We even had some fans in the studio while we were recording, just to include them more in the process." Watch the video here.
