Release date: June 2011
The Flood is the second full-length studio album by American metalcore band Of Mice & Men, released on June 14, 2011 through Rise Records. The album debuted at no. 28 on the Billboard 200, selling over 13,000 copies in its first week, making it one of Rise Records' best-selling releases ever. It is also the last release to feature clean vocalist Shayley Bourget. It marks a considerably heavier, technical musical approach from the band, and a stronger use of clean vocals from Bourget, having him lead two songs on the album (My Understandings, Purified).
The album was re-released on July 24, 2012. The re-release features four new songs, new artwork and the bonus acoustic track "When You Can't Sleep at Night", all written and performed by Bourget.
