Modest Mouse have cancelled their UK and European tour in order to concentrate on finishing their forthcoming album.

The band were due to play an eight-date tour of the UK in July as well as a host of shows across Europe and make appearances at T In The Park and Latitude festivals.

However, these have now been put on hold as they look to finish work on their first record in six years which represents the follow-up to 2007's We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank and is due to be released in 2014.

In a statement on their official website, the band said: "After much thought, we have decided to cancel our EU/UK tour to continue work on our forthcoming album.

"We do appreciate our fans and promise that we will make it up to you next year. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase. We look forward to sharing our new music with the world next year."

Modest Mouse will still be appearing at this year's First City Festival in Monterrey, US on August 24th.
