Of Mice & Men: Sänger verlässt die Band

Nach diversen Operationen und dem Abbruch ihrer Europa-Tour haben OF MICE & MEN nun bekanntgegeben, dass Sänger Austin Carlile die Band aus gesundheitlichen Gründen verlassen muss. Der am seltenen Marfan-Syndrom leidende Fronter entschied sich auf Raten der Ärzte, zukünftig vom Performen auf der Bühne abzusehen, da dies sonst langfristige und irreparable Schäden an Wirbelsäule und Nervensystem nach sich ziehen könnte.

Die Band äußerte sich in einem Statement zu dieser Entscheidung:
„As many of you are aware, Austin suffers from a rare connective tissue disorder called Marfan syndrome and has been struggling with the physical demands of touring since the band began. After his most recent series of surgeries at Stanford University Hospital, following the cancellation of our European headlining tour, his team of doctors informed him of the damage that performing, and more specifically his aggressive vocals, have been causing his body. […] Though we’re heartbroken that he can no longer continue, his health has always been of utmost importance to us and we support him now in this decision and are proud of his perseverance over the years. We’ve had an amazing and unforgettable past few years making music and touring the world together, and the four of us look forward to sharing the next chapter of the band’s story with you.“

Die bereits angekündigten Tourstopps werden wie geplant stattfinden.
