WALKMEN PULL CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS SLOT

There's disappointment as a US band reveal they won't be appearing...

THE WALKMEN have pulled out of the CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS FESTIVALS due to touring commitments in the US.

The former members of Jonathan Fire* Eater, who enjoyed success with recent singles ‘The Rat’ and ‘Little House Of Savages’, were due to play the event on the August Bank Holiday weekend.

But they have pulled their appearance due to a heavy schedule of tour dates in America.

In a statement the band said: “We wholeheartedly apologise to our fans and hope to come back to the UK in the near future.”
