Electric Callboy were set to kick off a string of tour dates to see out the year, but now they will be postponing them until next year.
Electric Callboy were scheduled to tour the UK, Europe and the US in support of their newly released album ‘TEKKNO’, starting tomorrow.
But they have just revealed that they are going to have to postpone.
The dates in the UK and Europe will be rescheduled so tickets will remain valid, whilst the tour in the US will be going ahead without the band. New tour dates stateside will be revealed in due course.
You can read a full statement from the band below:
“While we are extremely grateful for all the feedback we get for our new album ‘TEKKNO’, we have some very sad news today.
Nico has been suffering from a very severe jaw and middle ear infection for quite some time now. He has tried to get better between our shows and rehearsals, but it’s not working. The infection is coming back again and again. That’s why we already had to cancel the Blue Ridge Rock Fest two weeks ago.
Unfortunately, our hopes for a swift recovery were not fulfilled, and we have no option but to move our shows in England, France, and the US to new dates. We checked with every doctor we know, but they all say the same: no shows and especially no flying for Nico at the moment. Otherwise, he would risk permanent damage to his ear. That is a risk we definitely won’t take. We need Nico, and Nico needs his ears. And his ears need some time off.
There is not much we can do about that. We are super sorry and hope that you can support our decision. We were very excited to play those gigs and already put a lot effort in preparing them.
For the shows in England and France we will have new dates soon, meaning that the tickets stay valid. For the almost completely sold-out “THE LEVEL UP“ Tour we had planned in the US, we have to cancel our participation and come up with new dates next year. Support the other bands on this tour and party with them!
Believe us: We can’t wait to cross the Atlantic and come back next year. That’s a promise.”
