Modest Mouse have cancelled all of their upcoming UK and European tour dates, in order to finish work on their new album.

The band were set to tour the UK this July and were meant to be playing a series of headline dates in addition to sets at T In The Park and Latitude festivals. Their eight headline shows, including a gig at London Roundhouse on July 11, have now all been pulled so they can complete the follow-up to 2007's 'We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank'. The band have said that the album will be released in 2014.

Taking to their official website at Modestmouse.com, the band wrote:

"After much thought, we have decided to cancel our EU/UK tour to continue work on our forthcoming album. We do appreciate our fans and promise that we will make it up to you next year. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase. We look forward to sharing our new music with the world next year."
