"'Earth & Sky' is a song about resilience," said singer/bassist Aaron Pauley. "It's about understanding that you can rise above whatever it is that keeps trying to drag you down, no matter what. For me, a lot of the time, I'm writing about battling with my own mind. For you, it may be a person, or an obstacle, or a circumstance. Regardless of whatever it is that's trying relentlessly to drag you down, I hope this song empowers you to rise above it with authority, like it does me every time I sing it."
The band has also announced its tour plans. OM&M will embark on a headline tour this fall, with For the Fallen Dreams, Thousand Below, and Bloodbather in tow. All dates are below. A second leg set for 2020 will be announced shortly.
