Of Mice & Men’s Austin Carlile Released From Hospital After Multiple Surgeries
The singer has had an ongoing issue with Marfan Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder, that in 2015 led to him undergoing multiple surgeries as well, that time to remove part of the rib around his heart. Carlile has been keeping fans up to date on his progress, with his latest posting about his hospital discharge below.
Of Mice & Men returned earlier this year with the new album Cold World and the singer made his way back onto the stage, with the band spending time on tour with Slipknot and Marilyn Manson. They were on a European tour earlier this fall when Carlile began having significant pain. The band cut short a couple of shows before the decision was made to step away from touring for the rest of the year so that the singer could figure out what was causing his latest health issues.
Back in July, just ahead of their summer touring, Carlile was baptized. After his recent second surgery, the vocalist posted, "God is good and all your prayers are definitely working. HE is def working immensely in my life right now as well, and I've never felt so close to Him. Going through all this while living in the hospital the past 3 weeks has really helped me realize a lot. Keeping my eyes set on HIM to make it through, and to see what He has planned for me next, brings me so much joy! As @SelenaGomez says, 'by grace through faith' we can trust and look to HIM as our true HOPE, which the world desperately needs right now. Let your light shine, hard as it may be. 'We're not alone anymore' XX)."
As stated, Of Mice & Men released the Cold World album earlier this year. The disc has yielded the singles "Pain," "Contagious" and "Real," with the latter song currently making a steady rise up the rock radio charts.
