Crossfaith have announced they have been forced to cancel a string of dates in the US and Canada after their guitarist was diagnosed with repetitive strain injury and ordered to cut down on the amount of shows he performs.
Takemura Kazuki was told of his injury, which doesn’t do his rock cred any good, last week. The band are keen to let it be known that they will still be honouring the dates they have in the UK at Reading and Leeds festivals.
They say in a statement: “We are very sad to announce that we have no option but to cancel our Canadian and USA dates in September and October.
“Kazuki will still power on through our UK dates at Kingston Fighting Cocks and the Reading and Leeds festivals. But the tours we have booked would mean adding to Kazuki’s injury over a long period of time and we can’t risk making it worse.
“We hope you all understand. We promise we’ll be back soon, better and stronger than ever.”
