Of Mice & Men have replaced vocalist Jerry Roush with original frontman Austin Carlile, reports Alternative Press.
Carlile left Of Mice & Men, the band he started in 2009 after being kicked out of Attack Attack!, to undergo heart surgery last April. Ex-Sky Eats Airplane vocalist Roush joined the band after Carlile’s departure.
Roush responded to the band’s choice to replace him via Twitter:
“hey everyone… after sacrificing a year out of my life to keep a band afloat and touring after they kicked out the original singer, i just got a call informing me that they are bringing him back and my services were no longer needed. They didnt offer me a reason. I think its a little odd seeing how they all talked epic amounts of shit on him the entire time. Anyway, i already have some new stuff up my sleeve and i WILL NOT stop. This isnt the last of Jerry Roush. Thanks to everyone who supported me… keep a lookout!”
Of Mice & Men will be hitting the studio with producer Joey Sturgis this month to record their forthcoming sophomore release.
