of mice & men 2019

Of Mice & Men frontman Aaron Pauley has officially been cleared by a doctor to start touring again following surgery. 

The news follows the band’s decision to cancel a string of dates with Beartooth due to a “medical situation that required immediate urgent attention.” Prior to the Beartooth dates, the band announced a single show cancelation back in March after Pauley went to the hospital for a bit of testing.

Now, in a tweet, the frontman reveals the cause of the surgery was to remove precancerous tissue. That said, Pauley’s condition was not cancerous, but more of a cautionary measure to ensure a healthy future.

“Got the call from my doctor following up with results from my surgery. It was a success,” Pauley says in a tweet. “All of the precancerous tissue was completely removed, and I get my stitches out on the 24th, meaning I’m officially cleared to return to the road for our first show back on the 27th!”

While Pauley’s update is a certainly a relief, the band have kept fans up-to-date throughout the entire process. Just last week, they said the surgery went “without incident.”

As previously reported, the band’s canceled shows went through the end of April. However, with this good news, it looks like Of Mice & Men will be on the road with Bearooth when they predicted.
