Of Mice & Men's Austin Carlile Undergoes Surgery

Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile revealed that he underwent surgery on Monday (June 15th) following his recent hospitalization, which was believed to be from a cardiac issue related to Marfan syndrome.

Carlile posted the following message on Twitter, "About to head into the big operation now! Hopefully this will be the most effective of all the procedures they've tried thus far and will get me back on my feet and home again! Even when I finally do get back home, there's still progress to be had from there. Small steps!"

Last week he posted the following message to fans after was hospitalized and canceling tour dates, "Thank you for the get well wishes everyone. I'm transferring to Stanford University this week to be in care of my cardiologists & marfans specialists until my health situation at hand is under control.

"It has been a long past few days, and the ones following will be just as much of a struggle but I can do this. And I believe that whole heartedly.. If I believe in it. So should you. I'm sorry to anyone who missed the last two shows of our tour. I would have much rather been there than a hospital bed, I assure you. Love to everyone, band, family, you."
