NEWS: Austin Carlile (ex-Of Mice & Men) confirms return to music “in the next few months”!

Since his well documented departure from Of Mice & Men back in December 2016 due to his increasingly intense battle with Marfan syndrome, former frontman Austin Carlile has been keeping pretty low-key in the music world.

Instead of being equipped with a microphone in hand and dominating stages across the world, Carlile opted to take some much needed time to recover and to face his illness head on. He has since resided in Costa Rica, and has been receiving treatment whilst also spreading the awareness of Marfan syndrome and providing support for fellow sufferers.

Recently, Carlile issued a post via Instagram accompanied with a statement in its caption, in which the vocalist opened up about his experience with the disease in his life whilst also celebrating the success of this year’s Marfan Annual Family Conference.

This year's Marfan Annual Family Conference was a great success! Living with Marfan Syndrome has changed my life more than I ever could have imagined. I love being a part of a community of others than actually understand what it is like living daily with a chronic disease and overcoming constant chronic pain. Such a strong group of teens, young adults, parents, and even staff that all have become family to me over my years of working with the foundation. I found out I had Marfan when my mother suddenly passed from an aortic dissection when I was 17… she was only 38… Marfan Syndrome is a very rare and daunting genetic disorder that medical professionals have yet to find a cure for, but knowing there are others battling the same thing brings so much hope and inspiration. The Marfan community are some of the strongest people I know and with the biggest hearts (some literally.) It was a blessing to spend the weekend with our community and meeting new friends as well. Massive gratitude to @themarfanfoundation for allowing me to speak and participate alongside so many wonderful individuals. With a condition that makes you feel very much alone, it's hard to feel that way after leaving our annual conference and forming life long lasting relationships. Everyone has different struggles and battles in life, but those with Marfan Syndrome or related disorders deal with a different type of chronic pain, being lethargic, and a surplus of hip, rib, lung, heart, feet, spine, eye, head and leg issues day in and day out… Warriors. I'm thankful to be a part of such a caring, strong, and persevering community. Victory together. More info on our condition and how you can help us find a cure in the link in my bio: Marfan.org β€πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ•Š

In the comments, as expected, some of Carlile‘s fans reached out and enquired about if and when he feels he may return to making and performing music again.

Carlile responded to a handful of them, in which he confirms he will be making a return to music again very soon, saying in one response that it would be “in the next few months” and that it will be a “different scene. Different music” to what he’s been involved with in the past with his earlier projects Of Mice & Men and Attack Attack!.

More news surrounding Austin Carlile‘s future projects will be confirmed as they develop.
