The Horrors have been forced to pull out of their scheduled appearance at the Oxegen festival in Ireland today (July 12) after their frontman Faris Badwan was struck down with bronchitis.

The band had already been forced to pull their T In The Park festival show yesterday (July 11).

A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM yesterday: “The band played Lounge On The Farm festival [July 10] and Faris‘ voice gave in towards the end of the set. It was decided that he should return to London.”
