Chris Swindells - 18 September 2013

The Atlantan indie favourites released this following statement: "We are very disappointed to have to cancel our upcoming European tour do to unforeseen circumstances. We were very excited for these shows, but unfortunately family circumstances at home for multiple members of the band have made this unavoidable. We will reschedule as soon as possible."

The announcement from SWN Festival today also confirms that the Solus venue will no longer feature as part of the multi-venue event, and they aim to move Deerhunter's support acts, Bo Ningen, Pinkunoizu and Verity Susman, to alternative slots on the Friday night of the four day festival.
