Motorhead have postponed their European tour until February 2014 to allow time for frontman Lemmy Kilmister to recover from his health problems.

The metal veterans originally cancelled the shows earlier this year after the singer suffered a haematoma. The size, scale or location of the condition – where blood collects outside of a blood vessel - is not known, but the news of the medical problem follows the frontman being fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.

The dates were meant to support the band's new album, 'Aftershock', which was released last month. In a statement, posted today (October 30) on the band's official website imotorhead.com, Lemmy wrote: "We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don't worry - I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever."

He added: "It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn't quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would've disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over. When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble."
