Of Mice & Men’s Austin Carlile Hospitalized Due to Microphone Electrocution

Austin Carlile can’t catch a break this year. The Of Mice & Men vocalist has spent a good portion of 2015 recovering from multiple surgeries meant to alleviate some of the issues caused by his battle with Marfan Syndrome. Though not fully ready to return to the stage, Carlile has been rehearsing and now he’s found himself back in the hospital after receiving an electric shock while holding the microphone.
The singer revealed that he spent a day at the hospital after his microphone malfunctioned and delivered a severe electric shock. According to a pair of tweets on the situation, Carlile received burns on his fingers as a result of the shock and he adds that he feels like he was “run over by a truck.”
