THE AMEN WHO CANCELLED!

The band pull the shows because singer Casey Chaos has "breathing difficulties"...

AMEN have cancelled their entire UK tour, due to singer CASEY CHAOS’ “breathing difficulties”.

The American punk act were due to play a series of shows in June, as part of a wider European tour which included festivals and support slots with Slipknot

and Queens Of The Stone Age across mainland Europe.

The UK club shows have now been pulled, and it is anticipated the band will now return to the studio to work on a new album.

A statement issued by the band’s UK press office said that singer Casey Chaos is “still suffering from breathing difficulties” and 18 months on the road means they would not be able to “keep up the high energy levels required for their shows”.

Speaking about the cancellations, Chaos said: “We are very sad to have pull this tour, as we have had amazing support from our UK fans, and feel really bad about letting them down. However we felt we would be playing substandard shows, and don’t want to short-change them. We hope they will bear with us, and we can promise the next album will be incendiary!”

The UK shows that are postponed are at: Newport TJs (June 11)

Leeds Cockpit (12)

Bristol University (14)

Wolverhampton Wulfrun (15)

Manchester University MDH (16)

Sheffield Leadmill (17)

Liverpool L2 (19)

Nottingham Rock City (20)

Portsmouth Pyramid (21)

London Astoria (22)

Dublin Red Box (July 9)

The band still plan to appear at the Ozzfest on May 26, as well as all their major European festival appearances.
