+44 cancel Reading and Leeds sets

+44 have announced they're pulling out of Reading and Leeds to concentrate on writing new songs.

The band have cancelled their entire tour to prepare for the follow up to their debut album 'When Your Heart Stops Beating'.

The band said: "We want to start writing new songs and and we are really excited about the direction we have planned, so we're going into the studio instead of playing these few dates.

"We hope our fans will forgive us for the cancellation; in the end, this will make for an even better live show when we come back."

+44 were due to play on the Main Stage. No replacement has been announced as yet.
