Radio Chatter with Valentino Arteaga from Of Mice & Men Download

Download February 9th, 2018

Valentino Arteaga is the drummer from the metal-core band Of Mice & Men. The southern California boys are crisscrossing the northern part of country during the winter. I’m not sure why bands do that, but living up here, we’re grateful they do. Of Mice covered Pink Floyd’s “Money” for their latest album “Defy” so we talked about that and why they chose to cover that song. He told me about working with legendary producer Howard Benson, his musical upbringing, his keys to his success and more.

Of Mice & Men are currently touring the states and bring their show to Pontiac’s Crofoot Ballroom on Monday the 12th.

By the way, it’s his birthday on Valentine’s Day. Happy Birthday, bro!
