(Metal Hammer) Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile ended the year by announcing his departure from the group but earlier in the month of December he hit out at fans urging him to get better, saying his battle with Marfan Syndrome will never end.

Carlile's struggles with genetic disorder Marfans have seen him undergo a string of surgeries and have led to Of Mice & Men pulling out of various tours. Most recently, they had to withdraw from an Australian tour with A Day To Remember.

Now the singer had addressed fans in a series of tweets in which he explains his condition is not something he will ever fully recover from. Carlile says: "FYI you don't 'get better' with Marfans. You get by. I've had foot, ear, rib, head, hip, back and heart surgeries just so I can function and live.

"All of you saying I should hurry up and get better, what's taking so long? I'll never be better. You happy? I live each day as it comes. Each day is a battle. Marfan Syndrome is a fibrositic connective tissue disorder, that means it affects your entire body - and it is painful. I don't cry on Twitter on all the bad days. I suck it up and keep pushing on."
