Klaxons Postpone U.S. Shows

The band have been forced to postpone their shows -- including a CMJ gig -- due to a visa issue.

U.S. fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Klaxons stateside. The band, who initially planned to postpone their U.S. jaunt to finish their new album, are struggling with visa issues, according to their spokesperson. Since they haven’t been a band for an entire year and don’t have an album out yet, U.S. immigration has opted not to give them the necessary visa to perform in the States. While the band plan to make it here in February or March, the time off might not be so bad, as band member Simon Taylor will have a chance to recover from the injury that put him on crutches: Traveling on the roof of a moving tour bus.

Postponed tour dates:

11/1, New York, NY (Cake Shop)
11/3, Philadelphia, PA (Pure)
11/4, Brooklyn, NY (Galapagos)
11/7, Hollywood, CA (Cinespace)
11/9, San Francisco, CA (Popscene)
