The band are currently touring the US supporting Ellie Goulding but will no longer be joining her on the rest of her tour run.
After pulling out of a number of US tours earlier this month, the band can no longer tour as front man Olly Alexander remains ill.
Alexander is on strict warnings from doctors that rest is needed for him to make a full recovery. This is the latest in an unfortunate long line of cancellations. Despite trying to persevere and perform, the band are now forced to leave the US leg of the tour in order for Olly to recover.
We're very sorry to announce that we won't be playing our support show with @elliegoulding in Ypsilanti tonight due to Olly being unwell x

We wish a full and speedy recovery to Olly and hopefully we will be hearing some new music from the trio when all is well and good.
