Of Mice & Men Frontman Finds Relief On Slipknot Tour

Of Mice Men

(Metal Hammer) Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile says although his battle with Marfans gives him rough days, opening for Slipknot and Marilyn Manson across North America is just the tonic he needs.

He recently recalled the religious epiphany he had before undergoing life-changing heart surgery last year, which later inspired his decision to be baptized.

And as he and his bandmates prepare for the launch of their fourth album Cold World on September 9, Carlile tells the new episode of Metal Hammer: In Residence On Spotify that he's doing well - although he sometimes has to scale back his live performances.

He says: "Getting to play a rock show every night opening for Marilyn Manson and Slipknot is pretty therapeutic. We're on the road and I've just got to take care of my body by eating well and making sure I get enough sleep.

"The whole time we were in the studio I was doing physiotherapy and really getting my body ready to get back on the road. So far, so good. We've had a couple of scary moments and sometimes I've got to remember to tone it back a little bit - my body's not as strong as my spirit but it's great being able to go up there and give 110%.

"I wake up every day and it's rough but it makes it all worthwhile getting to do what we do." Read more here.
