Fear Factory have postponed their UK and European tour just hours after announcing it.
The band revealed plans to tour on this side of the pond in March and April 2015, but have decided that the live shows wouldn’t leave them enough time to complete their new album.
The industrial metal merchants said in a statement: “To our fans in Europe, the UK and Ireland – we regretfully must postpone the tour until summer 2015 in order to complete our forthcoming studio album.
“This is an important album for us. We wish to complete it properly so that we release a great album for our fans. We will see you soon.”
The band recently revealed that they are working on their new album in California with producer Rhys Fulber and engineer Mike Plotnikoff. The record will be released via Nuclear Blast and is still expected in 2015.
