Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile has told fans he's "lucky to be alive" after suffering a huge electric shock from a microphone.

Although not specifying where or when the incident took place, the singer took to Twitter to explain how he had spent the previous 24 hours receiving treatment. Rather matter-of-factly, he stated "close call for the heart."

It's the second time this year that Carlile has been admitted to hospital, after two Of Mice & Men shows were cancelled for unconfirmed reasons in June.
