Earlier this month Black Country, New Road called off their European tour due to "a member of the band falling ill."

With UK and Ireland dates approaching later this month and in December, the band shared a statement this morning (25 November) announcing the postponement of the rest of their 2021 tour dates.

Black Country, New Road wrote, "We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing illness within the band we are in the unfortunate position of having to postpone our remaining 2021 dates in the UK and Ireland."

The band added that they're "working on rescheduling these dates in 2022", and confirmed that ticket holders for their shows in Manchester, Bristol and Dublin will have valid tickets for the shows in April 2022.

"We can only apologise, your support and patience means a huge amount to us," the band concluded. "It's been an extremely difficult decision to make. We were really excited to play these shows. If we were in any position to, then we would have. We look forward to getting back on the road as soon as possible."

Earlier this month the group released "Bread Song", the second single from their forthcoming album Ants From Up There following last month's lead single "Chaos Space Marine".

Black Country, New Road's Ants From Up There album will be released 4 February 2022 via Ninja Tune, and is available to pre-order now. They're due to play London's Roundhouse on 8 February 2022. Tickets are on sale now.
