Feed The Rhino have pulled out of their upcoming support tour with Sikth, citing a difficulty in maintaining “personal commitments”.
“For the last six years FTR has encompassed the five of our lives,” the band explain, “and we have seen and done things that we never thought possible.
“But behind the scene, normal life carries on, and we all try and juggle the band with our other commitments in life (families, wives, mortgages, businesses etc).
“The older we have got, and the more successful the band has grown to be, the harder the juggling act has become.
“It has come to light in the last few weeks that for some in the band, committing to any more shows for the remainder of the year is an impossible task.
“We need to take a breath from being FTR, to see through an increasingly large mountain of personal commitments so that we can continue with the band next year.
“We hope to come back in 2016 better than ever, with new music and a determination to make up for our short comings over the last 12 months.”
The tour will still take place, with Destrage opening at all shows. Catch them at:
05 The Classic Grand, Glasgow
06 Academy 2, Manchester
10 Motion Bristol, Bristol
11 O2 Academy, Birmingham
12 O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
