Despite his health complications and his battle with Marfan Syndrome, Of Mice & Men’s former vocalist Austin Carlile has shared he is indeed working on new music over the last several months.
On Twitter via a set of tweets he has posted:
“Spent the past 8 months recovering from last Octobers spinal tears that forced me to leave band… during the past 3 months was receiving a series of 24-34 injections in my spine, hips, & legs every 3 weeks. As well as weekly IV treatments… was making progress until earlier in June when I began losing feeling & use of my legs… that was what ultimately hospitalized me in Costa Rica, then led me here to Stanford to find out what exactly was going on… has been tough… but I am tougher. Has been the biggest obstacle to overcome… but God is bigger. This is the longest I’ve gone in 10 years w/out playing music/touring. The wound stays fresh, a massive piece of me ripped away & missing… but honestly the part I’ve missed the most is YOU. My dream/journey wouldn’t have been possible w/out all of you in the first place x”
After Austin Carlile’s Departure due to health reasons four months ago, Of Mice & Men have released their first track since then. Bassist Aaron Pauley has stepped up to the vocals now on their new track, ‘Unreakable’.
Former Of Mice & Men Vocalist Austin Carlile has given fans an update on his battle with Marfan Syndrome.
On Instagram, he wrote:
“Recently started another (hopefully final) spinal treatment here in Costa Rica. This procedure is 1x a week for 2-3 months… each week a series of 12-24 shot injections into my spinal chord, muscle, & ligaments from my legs, up to hips, then, low and middle back, to repair all my ligaments in the area, plus weekly IV’S to go with it!
“My team recently discovered that the ligaments in my body are deteriorating faster than expected and this has been a root of some of my problems and a lot of my PAIN. So I’m taking this next #MarfanSyndromeTreatment head on! Will be a rough few weeks ahead but I have faith! God give me strength and lets go!
“I will be overcoming and recovering from this before seeing some of you THIS Summer! Living with #MarfanSyndrome is tough, but we are stronger…’Marfans means dealing with constant daily pain, people dealing with it must have a full reserve of strength’ -Melissa Hormanski
“I love you guys!!! And thank you for the support as always and I’m sorry I haven’t been able to reach out to you all lately, excited to share more about this Summer though!”
