Kaiser Chiefs, British indie pop-rockers who have managed to climb to the status of a stadium-touring band in the UK, have been gallivanting across the globe this year in support of their sophomore album, Yours Truly Angry Mob, and it seems to have taken its toll. The band has just announced that they will be canceling seven of their ten North American shows.
Drummer and songwriter Nick Hodgson spoke out about the canceled dates, saying, "We'd like to apologise to fans in America and Canada, especially those who have already bought tickets, but something had to give...we plan to have new material out as soon as possible and we've wanted to record all summer."
Hodgson promises that the dire recording sessions will "explore new ground, beyond the sound of [their] first two records." The band plan to reveal these new songs live on their upcoming fall UK tour. Ticketholder can receive a full refund at their point of purchase.
Here are the re-worked dates:
14 Sep - Austin, USA - City Limits Festival
16 Sep - Mexico City, Mexico - Salon 21
19 Sep - Houston, USA - Warehouse Live
21 Sep - Nashville, USA - City Hall
22 Sep - Atlanta, USA - The Roxy
24 Sep - Chicago, USA - The Metro
25 Sep - Detroit, USA - Majestic Theatre
26 Sep - Toronto, Canada - Carlu Theatre
