Bullet For My Valentine have been forced to cancel the rest of their sold-out UK tour along with a trip to the USA in December.

Singer Matt Tuck has had to take a break due to laryngitis brought on from a throat infection and fatigue.

In a statement Tuck says:

"To everyone that was coming to our shows this week, we are so, so sorry about this. I feel so bad that I'm letting you guys down, we were looking forward to this tour as much as you were cos these are the biggest shows we've ever done. The truth is I just don't have the power in my voice that I need to put on the kind of blindin' show you expect to see and hear from Bullet. I promise you these dates would not have been pulled if it wasn't for a damn good reason, and unfortunately for you guys, and us, the docs are telling me to take it easy and rest up. We are NOT cancelling these shows but just postponing them. We will also be back in Edinburgh to do a full show for you guys to make up for the gig we played on Monday that we had to cut short. I promise you we WILL be back. Thanks for all your messages of support, they really mean a lot to me. See you in January, Matt."

All of the UK dates have been rescheduled to January, apart from Brighton, where refunds for the show will be available from the point of purchase. The reason for no new Brighton show is lack of an available venue.

The new dates are:

Wed 03, Newcastle Academy
Thur 04, Manchester Apollo
Fri 05, Birmingham Academy
Sun 07, Cardiff University
Mon 08, London Hammersmith Apolloo
