Spiritualized have cancelled two forthcoming shows, including their headline slot at Standon Calling, on the weekend of August 12-14.

The band have also had to pull a show in Sicily because of ongoing medical treatment being received by bandleader J. Spaceman otherwise known as Jason Pierce.

A press release from the band's agents says:

J. Spaceman has been undergoing a course of medical treatment, which is near completion, and has left management no choice but to cancel following advice from his medical team.


It continues:

Everything possible has been done to try and play these shows but it recently became apparent that Jason would not be able to perform. Spiritualized apologise to everyone who is affected and hope they realise that cancellation was the only unavoidable option given the medical circumstances.


The band's October dates and 2012 shows are unaffected and will go ahead as planned, as will the release of a brand new album in early 2012. These are the first shows Spiritualized have cancelled in their 21-year career.

Spiritualized play:

Edinburgh Queens Hall (October 9)
Leamington Spa Assembly Hall (10)
London Royal Albert Hall (11)
Dublin Vicar Street (February 23, 2012)
Manchester Academy (24)
Bristol Academy (25)
