PureVolume Presents: Of Mice & Men Interview

Posted by - 06:11 PM on 12/27/12
PureVolume recently sat down with Austin Carlile (Of Mice & Men) and talked about his work ethic, the band's upcoming album, and more.
From The InterviewTwo or three years ago, I may have gotten sucked into that stuff and voiced my opinion on this or that. But at this point in my life, I don't need somebody else's opinion. It absolutely makes me sick to see some of the hating on each other online. I think it's bullshit, and I think it's time for people in our industry to grow up. Instead of wasting time trying to be hurtful to someone else, why not try to help yourself and do something bigger?

The only people who care about haters on the Internet are people who get hated on on the Internet. Austin, if it wasn't for the "hate" you get online, no one would give a shit about your band. All press is good press. Just appreciate the fact you're enormous for doing nothing (generic band, having tattoos & cool hair), and get the fuck over it.

Hate is powerful in its own right. Ask Shai Hulud.

In the past. Everybody does stupid shit that they end up regretting but that doesn't mean he can't grow up and realize the error of his ways. Then he can tell people it's not worth it because he knows from experience.

Honestly, I don't understand why people hate Austin/OM&M so much.

I don't hate him but everything surrounding the guy seems so insincere. Sans the Mitch Lucker performance at the Memorial Show, I don't care for any of his music either.

Because they're an incredibly generic, dime-a-dozen band?

I feel like he's the kind of guy to act really sincere and genuine in front of everyone but behind closed doors is a total douche. I have no idea if he's actually like that, it's just the vibe i get. I've heard many things about him that say he's not really a good dude.

Zing! I just watched Sleepwalk With Me and it reminded me of the scene where Mike Birbiglia was getting glass shards removed from his leg and the doctor said he should be dead and in response said no you should be dead.

I can't read this at work. I've always liked Austin, but his bands have always sucked.

Austin seems like the nicest guy to me. I've met him and seen him live, and watching part of Taking Back Sunday headline Slam Dunk South with him. He seemed like one of the most genuine band members I have met. As he said, his surgery changed him.
