Of Mice and Men frontman Austin Carlile has given fans a major update about his health; he’s “closer to 100%.”
The frontman, who was hospitalized at the beginning of June, has had to undergo several serious surgeries during the last month due to Marfans Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissues. But through the horrendous ordeals, one thing stayed constant, Carlile’s goal of getting better and making sure fans were updated on his recovery.
Last weekend, Carlile posted a major update for fans in which he revealed that he is getting closer to 100%.
Today was my first day "out of the house" since my surgery! Getting closer to 100% with every passing week. Almost out of the woods!
It also appears that getting better isn’t the only goal the singer has set. Taking a look at Of Mice and Men’s website, it appears that they have some upcoming shows still scheduled for 2015. The first has the band performing at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, KY on Oct. 3 and 4. A little over a month after that, they are scheduled to head overseas to play at Ozzfest Japan on Nov. 21.
Of Mice and Men frontman Austin Carlile underwent a serious and “big” surgery yesterday, over a week after OM&M broke the news that the band had to cancel the final two days of their “Full Circle Tour” with Crown the Empire and Volumes due to their singer being hospitalized.
When the news broke, no one knew what led to Carlile’s hospitalization, but it was eventually revealed it was stemming from Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue, which the singer has.
Last week, Carlile had updated fans that he was being moved from the hospital he had been checked into to Stanford University where he would be in the care of his own cardiologist as well as a Marfan specialist.
On Twitter yesterday, Carlile updated fans with the news about the then upcoming surgery and hoped that it would be “the most effective of all the procedures they’ve tried” on him to combat Marfan or at least keep it at bay.
After his several posts on both Twitter and Instagram, support immediately began to flood in from fans as well as fellow musicians. OM&M bandmate Aaron Pauley, Periphery guitarist Mark Holcomb, and Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta all sent him well wishes in their own kooky way, as can be seen below.
About to head into the big operation now! Hopefully this will be the most effective of all the procedures they've tried thus far and will
