Legit super upset about this. I seriously hope that he's not in too much pain, and that him taking a new step towards health living in Costa Rica will help prolong his life.
they should just split up
Eh, band hasn't been good for a long time.
Digging: Sparks - No. 1 in Heaven
He woulda died in a year or two if he didn't leave. The band may continue but their popularity will crash hard.
Feel bad for him, his condition sounds pretty awful
Digging: Dekagram - May Flights Of Devils Guide
Best wishes to him. I wasn't a huge fan of the band, with the exception of The Flood, which wasn't too bad. Carlile is a great guy though, and I hope that he will continue persevering. It sounds horrible what he has to go through, but he has great strength.
The band is done is Austin isn't their vocalist
marfan syndrome is to multiple sclerosis what pork is to chicken
lol the band continuing with its current members is gonna be a laugh fest
Haven't really been a fan of these guys for a while, but damn I really feel sorry for the dude. Sickness is sickness. Best wishes to him
He'll never get better, the condition he has is awful, it means he spends a lot of his life in agony and could die any day. So leaving the band is definitely for the best. However I really don't see the band surviving without him.
Digging: Tangerine Dream - Tangram
Was the band really surviving with him though
Digging: Deceased - Ghostly White
I feel bad for the guy, but it's honestly for the best. This band is probably gonna fade away without him though.

Really gutted about this. Band is only gonna get worse without him, and that's coming from someone who really liked Cold World. Of Mice & Men was his baby, without Austin the band is nothing.
judging by the rating of their last album, this band was already nothing.
The Flood was/is the only good thing this band did.
Man, Cold World got shit on unfairly I think. It's not a 1.whatever it's sitting at. It's a hard 2.8
a "hard 2.8" ain't all that better ya know.
"marfan syndrome is to multiple sclerosis what pork is to chicken"
I don't understand, please explain?
Their new album is complete garbage but I hope Austin gets better
Good actually, he can hopefully make some progress towards staying healthier and the band will hopefully stop being shit or break up
A 2.8 is a record that is severely flawed but still enjoyable, a 1.8 makes it sound like it's absolutely unbearable. It's more of a "meh this is fine," than a burning dumpster fire.
Well personally if i see that a record has 2.8 i'll probably not bother hearing it (unless i'm a huge fan of the band/artist).
Not surprised to hear about this. Never liked their music but best of luck to him anyway.
I love their first two albums, but they've been going downhill since Shayley left, and this is just the nail in the coffin
Digging: Joji - Ballads 1
I agree with erizen tbh, I thought Cold World was purely average. It was like their Minutes to Midnight to me.
Cold World was absolutely abysmal
Feel bad af for the man. I do hope he can finally get the rest he deserves. Will probably bump the first two albums just cause that's some shitty news to have to part with. I doubt the band will last after his departure.
Cold World was fun, 3.2 for me
Music was starting to get really bad but I feel for the dude. At least he's doing what's right for him. I did hear from a friend in that scene that Shayley might be the new frontman.
Digging: Architects - Holy Hell
I hope that's not true, I'd much rather have Dayshell than OMAM
Dayshell's first album is about on par with OMAM's third album, both albums to come after that are garbage.
Who will save our lives now? 2016 truly is the worst year in history!
Aaron Pauley was way better in Jamie's Elsewhere than he's ever been in OM&M, maybe if he becomes sole frontman it could be a good thing. That being said it sucks to hear about Austin, his condition sounds awful and I hope he can improve.
I love Dayshell, both albums are fantastic imo.
Agreed that Pauley was way better in JE, he turned into a shitty vocalist once he left
Never liked this bad but this is still sad. Guy was living his dream and had to cut it short because he lives in agony. That's just shitty. Wish him the best.
Digging: Moonshade - Sun Dethroned
to bad, so sad
Digging: The Ocean - Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic
I still haven't really checked out OM&M but respected Carlile. Hope he can recover and come back in a few years with a new band in Costa Rica.
I mean I didn't dig their music but they have an army of scene girls that have kept them quite successful. Marfan Syndrome is no joke though. Even if I don't dig his music I do hope he gets treatment that prolongs his length/quality of life.
I think they could still have a chance. Are we forgetting their bassist, Aaron Pauley, was the lead for Jamie's Elsewhere? He can sing and scream...he honestly kind of favors Carlilie's old screams.
He is a creep and a douchebag. See you later.
Awful human/vocalist of awful garbage band leaves... I'm so sad about this u guys
Is he an awful human too?
No. He isn't. Maybe he was an asshole in Attack Attack when he was 18 or some shit but he's been a stand up guy for a while now.
Aaron was good in Jamie's Elsewhere but his vocals haven't been as good since he joined Of Mice & Men and yeah Austin Carlile definitely has some baggage.
He has a misdemeanor assault charge so yeah, pretty much an unforgivable piece of shit
I think they mean the stuff he would do with underage girls while he was in Attack Attack! and Of Mice & Men..and while he was married.
He has an assault charge because some asshole was talking shit about a fan with cancer so he (rightfully) clocked him.
Hey man, if the only girls that listen to your band are 15, what are you supposed to do
I would feel gross doing those things if I were him. Especially if I was married to a grown woman.
Yuck. Didn't know any of this.
yeah Attack Attack! talked about him a really long time ago. He is a bit older than the members of Attack Attack! were
"He has an assault charge because some asshole was talking shit about a fan with cancer so he (rightfully) clocked him."
Don't let one good deed fool u. He was a notorious creeper of young girls and also cheated heavily on his partners.
Damn that's fucked up, didn't know he was into that
To elaborate, this dude he had a fight with was making fun of a 14-year-old girl who had just died of cancer.
And, obviously inviting a 17-year-old girl onto your bus when you're 23 and married is fucked up, not defending that.
Yeah not sure how you guys didn't know this dude was a child predator lol
the man has obviously changed. He's not like that anymore. Haven't been an active fan of this band for maybe a year. Their first two albums are awesome, and RF was pretty good. Cold World is ass. I figure that they'll fizzle out soon enough without Austin, and make way for bands like Beartooth and Wage War. Maybe Aaron can do some screaming though, who knows? Maybe they'll try and go heavier now that they have a screamer who can actually scream still.
"Yeah not sure how you guys didn't know this dude was a child predator lol"
because i don't really listen to/follow any of his projects
Digging: Architects - Holy Hell
Especially if I was married to a grown woman.
Grown woman is redundant. If a female is a woman, she's fully grown.
The remaining members should just start a new band.
Thank you for the English lesson someguest I'm still getting used to the language.
"because i don't really listen to/follow any of his projects"
The man's name stands for bring on the breakdown, he's an expert in all things metalcore.
That's unfortunate. Hope he's alright.
It sucks a lot for the band though, they've put so much of a stake in making Carlile the face of OM&M. He pretty much IS OM&M to a majority of the fans at this point. Their popularity will tank, and that's unfortunate because I think Aaron is a really talented dude and could probably make for a good front man.
Also, how much of a chance is there that Shayley comes back now? Tbh, I think bringing him back might be the only thing that could help them recover from this.
I sincerely hope Shayley stays in Dayshell and doesn't join the washed up OMAM
Dave from Crown the Empire could generate enough buzz to keep the band afloat, if he is indeed out of CTE.
Dave was always the best thing about CTE, both in studio and live
Yeah, it'd be nice if they'd actually tell their fans whether their most important member is out of the band or not.
Austin was becoming more and more useless with every album. He is now just in the background repeating the singer or doing his edgy screaming about "You don't know what I went thru"
"You don't know what I've been* through"
ftfy :P But... that lyric is from their "best album".
Yeah, I don't want Shay to leave Dayshell either. I think he fits much better in there.
But it's hard to ignore the fact that Dayshell has gone through some serious struggles lately, even to the point where they barely got to release their last record from what I understand. They were kicked off of their older label and put into one that has done nothing to market them. Their popularity plummeted after they went defunct for a year and a half. They lost their drummer. They kinda had to start over with a lot.
All I'm saying is that this is a big opportunity for Shayley to be relevant in the scene again, and for OM&M to save themselves from major fan backlash by bringing back a beloved original member. It wouldn't surprise me if it ended up happening.
Not sure of the CTE guy, though that might just be me. Never been a big fan of them.
Austin is not a child predator, I thought all those internet rumours cleared up? He has an assault charge cos he punched a guy making fun of a girl who died of cancer. He never touched any underage girls, there were online rumours about it, but it was all basically bollocks.
Swing and a miss. They are true, they were just hard to prove.
He is not a child predator in the traditional sense that he molests kids. He is one in the sense that he commits statutory rape. He will sleep with underage girls as an adult
"He is not a child predator in the traditional sense that he molests kids. He is one in the sense that he commits statutory rape. He will sleep with underage girls as an adult"
and when did this supposedly happen?
@bloc I may or may not have been 16 when I joined this site almost 10 years ago
"The man has obviously changed"
I mean that's sick but he's still a piece of shit so
"and when did this supposedly happen?"
I have Marfans Syndrome, and I'm shocked it took him this long to leave. There's a lot of pain involved with he condition we have, and I couldn't imagine doing what he does. That being sad, it's really hard to be sympathetic, considering the rape rumors (and even if you don't believe those, consider that Landon Tewers has written shit about him that doesn't exactly paint him in a good light).
Landon Tewers kind of did that to promote The Plot In You's new album at the time
