Of Mice & Men (OM&M) guitarist Alan Ashby has (on the face of it*) responded to a claim made by ex-vocalist Austin Carlile about his departure.

In a recent exchange with a fan on Instagram, Carlile revealed one of the reasons why he left the OM&M – they weren’t letting Carlile write their new music the way he wanted.
