Of Mice & Men Vocalist Austin Carlile to Miss Upcoming Tour Due to Health Condition

by | Feb 12, 2010

Of Mice & Men vocalist Austin Carlile has been forced to drop off the band’s upcoming tour with Alesana and A Skylit Drive due to a health condition that seeks immediate medical attention. Carlile commented:

“While on our break after New Years from tour, my cardiologist in Ohio called me and told me that I needed to get to a hospital and get tests re-done immediately. They also called in some rad heart meds that 70 year olds take for me to start on. Haha! The next day I went in for an EKG, MRI, and CATSCAN to find out that the surgery I was aware I would need in a few years, was now needed within the next 8 months instead. The doctor also told me that I wasn’t allowed to tour until the surgery happened. They’ll be cutting me right down the middle, FUN! SO, I had to break the news to the band/management and let them know I was getting this set up as soon as possible. I will be getting everything done within the next couple of months, and WILL be recovered in time to play Warped Tour!”

Jerry Roush (ex-Sky Eats Airplane) will be substituting as the band’s vocalist during Carlile’s absence. The tour is scheduled to kick off on Feb 13th in Philadelphia, PA.
