Foxygen have cancelled their European tour dates and festival stops. Their upcoming North American tour, which includes performances at the—Sweetlife Festival, Solid Solid Sound, Forecastle Festival, Firefly Festival and more—will continue as planned. The band released a statement on their Facebook page earlier today that reads:
We have some unfortunate news. We have to cancel our upcoming EU dates for May and June and upcoming EU festival dates. We’d like apologize to all our European fans and supporters. We know this causes frustration and headaches for ticket buyers and promoters alike. We assure you this is ultimately for the creative health of the band. We will back in EU very soon and promise to make this up to all of you. Please understand. Thank you again, all of you. Your time, attention and support mean the world to us.
Foxygen made a bit of a splash at SXSW in Austin, TX a few weeks ago, but cancelled several of their showcases partway through the festival. The band was also featured as an On The Verge artist in the January-February 2013 issue of Relix.
