A representative for Rise Records has revealed exclusively to Altpress that Of Mice & Men have replaced vocalist Jerry Roush with original frontman Austin Carlile. The band also replaced guitarist Phil Manansala with Carlile collaborator Alan Ashby.

Carlile was the original vocalist of Attack Attack! before being fired by the band in 2008. The following year, Carlile started Of Mice & Men but left the band last April citing a need to undergo heart surgery. An ugly feud took place online between Carlile and the remaining members of OM&M, along with a few choice comments from Attack Attack! Ex-Sky Eats Airplane vocalist Roush took over after filling in for Carlile on tour.

The reformed Of Mice & Men lineup will head into the studio this month with producer Joey Sturgis to record their sophomore full-length.
