The Vaccines have been forced to cancel three shows over continuing problems with singer Justin Young's voice.

The band will not play scheduled shows this week in Holland, Austria and Northern Ireland, after Young was ordered by doctors to rest his voice. It is likely that he will now have to undergo another operation on his vocal chords.

However, the band will go ahead with their headline show at London HMV Forum on August 23, as well as their slots at Reading and Leeds festivals. Having just flown back from Los Angeles where they were performing on Jimmy Kimmel, Young posted a message at TheVaccines.co.uk expressing their apology and diasppointment.

The statement reads:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to announce the cancellation of our performances in Holland, Austria and Northern Ireland this week due to a continuing issue with my vocal chords. The doctor has ordered immediate vocal rest with the risk of permanent damage to my speaking and singing voice if ignored. Right now we are hoping that these will be the only cancellations, so please bear with us.



Young went on to explain the situation regarding the shows they are going ahead with, saying:

I know it may seem strange that we would perform on Jimmy Kimmel with this in mind, and cancel other things. No performance takes priority over any other, but we had already travelled to LA especially when the doctor broke the news, and we only have a two song slot, so we will be honouring this commitment. Thank you for understanding. And see you soon. I promise.
