Of Mice & Men singer collapses onstage

Friday, November 13, 2009 8:39 AM PT


Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile apparently collapsed onstage while performing at The Boulevard in Spokane, WA at part of the Atticus Tour. Carlile, who reportedly has a heart condition, was removed on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital.

Carlile has subsequently posted the following via Twitter: "I'm safe everyone! Out of the ER, resting now. I have to follow up with my heart doctor in Los Angeles. Thank you so much for all the love and prayers... Tonight was very scary. My life was totally out of my hands. So blessed. Here's to new beginnings, in every aspect of my life. Thanks again."

Why do these christian band members always think they are "blessed" when this shit happens? Did he ever think that was a warning shot and if he doesn't stop sucking at life so bad the next one will be a deathblow?

11/13/2009 9:52:39 AM

That's what you get for lying to your "friends" about said heart condition years ago to get girls and sympathy, I guess it finally caught up with you didn't it? You deserve every bit of what happens.
