Yeasayer have postponed a string of European tour dates next month.

A statement released by the band yesterday read: "Due to family reasons we have to postpone our September 2012 European tour. Everyone is fine, and we are regrouping and trying to reschedule for the end of Nov/ beginning of Dec. We promise to make our way across the Atlantic in support of 'Fragrant World'. We appreciate your understanding and we promise to make this up to you!"

A band spokesperson confirmed to NME today that the "family reasons" cited were the birth of guitarist and keyboardist Anand Wilder's daughter.

Earlier in the week, the band tweeted their congratulations, writing: "UPDATE: We'd like to congratulate Anand Wilder + his wife Jo on giving birth to their beautiful new baby girl on Sat!!! Show news soon."

Yeasayer released their third album 'Fragrant World' - the follow up to 2010's 'Odd Blood' - on August 20.

The following UK dates will be affected:
