Black Veil Brides have cancelled their remaining European tour dates.

Singer Andy Biersack revealed that the band have pulled out of gigs this week supporting Slash and Motley Crue in Paris, Bamberg and Basel as well as another show in Strasbourg and appearances at the Gods of Metal Festival in Italy and Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium because of a bereavement.

Writing on the band's Facebook page, Biersack said: "I am sorry to say that due to the recent passing of my grandfather I will not be able to complete the final week of this current tour. I feel it is necessary for my own grief and heart that I take this time to attend his funeral and celebrate his life with my family and loved ones before I head back into the studio to resume work on our next record. We promise to make up any dates missed the next time we [are] in this part of the world."

The goth metallers recently spoke to NME at Download Festival in a video which you can see below. Biersack said that the band hoped to complete work on their third album by the end of August and that they were working with Goldfinger's John Feldmann.

He said: "We've got three songs tracked. We've set ourselves a deadline of the end of August to finish it. We've got 20 to 25 songs written and we're narrowing it down now. John Feldmann is producing it. It's going to be more of a punk rock record than anything we've done before. It's Social Distortion meets Metallica."

Black Veil Brides are presently scheduled to release their third album in October.
