The singer suffers from Marfan Syndrome, a rare connective disorder which has affected his whole body, especially during their tours.
Carlile’s health issues have resulted in multiple gig cancellations including the upcoming tour with A Day To Remember.
Band members Aaron Pauley, Alan Ashby Phil Manansala and Valentino Arteaga will continue as a four-piece.
CelebMix wishes all the best to Of Mice & Men and wishes the best of luck to Austin Carlile with his health.
