Austin Carlile Praises Former Band Of Mice & Men On New Release “Unbreakable”

By  | 

Austin Carlile has posted to Instagram for the first time since his former band Of Mice & Men released their first single “Unbreakable” which featured Aaron Pauley on vocals in Carlile’s place. The post consisted of a sweet statement, praising the new release.

Carlile unfortunately had to part ways with Of Mice & Men in the final days of December in 2016 due to his illness and creative differences within the band. Since his departure, Carlile has been an advocate for the Marfan Foundation.

Recently, Carlile shared with fans an update (and some-what teaser) on his health, saying, “”I will be overcoming and recovering from this before seeing some of you this Summer!”

“People saying “Of Mice is back”… we never went anywhere!!! Great job on new song guys, taking it back to sounding like the kings of screamo & metalcore again!!! After 8 years of touring, 4 full albums, and over TWELVE members apart of this band up until this point so far… SO many people and hearts have made Of Mice what it is today… It has always been a group effort, it has always been about what everyone individually puts in or brings to the table to form the whole… @omandm isn’t just one or two people… It is many. It employs over 25 people, it gives jobs & health care to people that can’t afford it (like me for example.) It brings hope to people whom may have none with it’s lyrics that Shayley, Aaron, myself, and even Valentino have written over the years… It is you. It has always been about you, the fan, the listener. Because that’s exactly what we are ourselves, fans of music! That’s why they must continue on and I’m PROUD to see them continuing on strong, and especially proud to see @alanashby on the mic too”
