Sad news this morning folks: Deerhunter have cancelled their forthcoming European tour.

"We are very disappointed to have to cancel our upcoming european tour do to unforeseen circumstances," read the statement. "We were very excited for these shows, but unfortunately family circumstances at home for multiple members of the band have made this unavoidable. We will reschedule as soon as possible."

This also means that they won't be appearing at Sŵn Festival this year (Spectrals, The Lay Lows, Danny Byrd and Amateur Best also won't be performing, which is a shame).

Ticket holders are advised to contact their point of purchase for a refund.
