Cold War Kids Soldier On Despite Futureheads' Tour Cancellation

The Futureheads have pulled out of their forthcoming North American tour commitment with the Cold War Kids and Streets To Nowhere, which was to begin October 4 in Seattle. A post on the band's website states:

It is with great sadness that I must tell you we have had to cancel our forthcoming US Tour, due to the development of tendonitis in Barry's left wrist. He has been advised to rest and, as far as we can see, there is no way of us being able to make those shows work, given the state of his wrist. We are all deeply disappointed at having to pull the shows at such a late stage, but there is no way around it for us. Apologies to the people with tickets - we promise to get out to the US at the next available opportunity. The UK tour will not be affected by this given that there are some months progress toward recovery, and only rest will enable that.

Thanks for your understanding

However, those who were hoping to catch their first glimpse of the much-talked-about Cold War Kids are still in luck, as the LA-based, newly-signed-to-Downtown Records band will continue the tour as planned, with just a few venue changes. Also, Streets To Nowhere have dropped off, but Delta Spirit and Foreign Born have each signed on as a support act.

CWK will be supporting their debut album, Robbers & Cowards, along the way. Look for it in stores October 10. Tour dates below.
