The Flood is the second studio album by American rock band Of Mice & Men. It was released on June 14, 2011 through Rise Records and was produced by Joey Sturgis. On May 13, 2011, they released the song "Still YDG'N". The album was leaked onto the internet on June 10, 2011, with Rise Records countering the leak by uploading the album on to their YouTube page four days before the release. The album debuted at number 28 on the Billboard 200, selling over 13,000 copies in its first week, making it one of Rise Records' best-selling releases at the time. It is also the first album to feature rhythm guitarist Alan Ashby, as well as the last release to feature bassist and 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 three songs on the album ("My Understandings", "Purified" and "When You Can't Sleep at Night").
The album was re-released on July 24, 2012 and was produced by Cameron Webb. The re-release has four new songs, all written and performed without Bourget, new artwork, and the acoustic bonus track "When You Can't Sleep at Night".
