Falls have had to pull out of all UK tour dates, including their imminent tour with We Are Carnivores and their final “Falls & Friends Show” due to lead vocalist Martin Gallagher being hospitalised.
Gallagher said: “Firstly, I just want to say sorry to We Are Carnivores and Discord Agency, who both put together a great run of shows and us idiots in FALLS were really looking forward to heading out to party. Unfortunately when a doctor from our beloved NHS tells you that you’re rocking a muscular and skeletal tear over your heart, and you’ve got to rest up: you rest up! We all want to thank and apologise to the promoters, fans and venues who were on board with us, we hope to see you soon, we love your faces x”
