Foxygen have cancelled their upcoming UK and European tour, claiming that the "creative health" of the band depends on them not playing the gigs.

The US two-piece, who come from California and released their album 'We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic ' earlier this year, released a statement to confirm the gig cancellations. Scroll down to see the full statement and list of shows affected by the decision.

The statement reads: "We have some unfortunate news. We have to cancel our upcoming EU dates for May/June and upcoming EU summer festival dates. We'd like apologise to all our European fans and supporters. We know this causes frustration and headaches for ticket buyers and promoters alike. We assure you this is ultimately for the creative health of the band. We will back in EU soon and promise to make this up to all of you. Please understand. Thank you again, all of you. Your time, attention and support mean the world to us. Love, Foxygen."
