Of Mice & Men singer Austin Carlile quits band

Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile has announced his exit from the band. Via a lengthly statement (see below), Carlile explains that his Marfan syndrome has become increasingly exacerbated by touring and performing, to the point where he can no longer continue to do so without causing "permanent and irrevocable damage to my spinal cord and nervous system." Of Mice & Men will continue on as a four-piece, while Carlile will now live in Costa Rica, where he continues to "heal, rest, and write."
