Cancelling a Tour? Oh, The Horrors

The Horrors have cancelled their American and European tour. They issued the following statement:

“Dear friends, family, supporters, deadly sworn enemies and other. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to reshuffle our US and European tours at the end of this year. We can only apologise to anyone who already has tickets to the dates affected – we hate cancelling shows but this situation was unavoidable. We’ll be back on the road next year and make sure we return to all the places we missed on this run.”

The band’s UK tour has not been affected by this.
