Black Veil Brides have cancelled their remaining UK tour dates due to singer Andy Biersack's broken nose.

The shock rockers were due to play at Wolverhampton Wulfrun tonight (October 30) and O2 Academy Bristol on Tuesday (November 1), but have pulled the gigs due to the injury.

Although the injury was sustained earlier this week during the band's European tour, the shock rockers managed to play last night's gig at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

In a statement, the band said:

Despite making it through the show, Andy was in excruciating pain and had difficulty singing and breathing. As a result, he needed to see a doctor after the show. He has been advised not to perform for the next three weeks to allow himself time to rest, heal and fully recover.

The statement added that the band are working to reschedule the gigs as soon as possible.

Biersack broke his nose after his "stage antics" on Wednesday (26) went wrong. Shortly afterwards he tweeted: "For those asking, during last night's show I broke my nose down the center, splitting the bone... I apologize and promise to do my best to recover. Excruciating pain and it's my own damn stage antics fault. I promise to try my best to heal quickly."

Earlier this year, the band were forced to pull a string of dates after Biersack broke three ribs during a gig in Hollywood. He sustained the mishap after jumping from one balcony to another while "trying to fly".

"I just felt so stupid," he commented.
