Rockers Funeral For A Friend have been forced to cancel their British tour because singer Matt Davies has developed laryngitis.

The STREETCAR stars have promised to reschedule the sold out UK dates when Davies recovers from the debilitating throat problem.

A statement from the band reads: "We want to send out apologies to everyone who was coming to see us.

"Due to the laryngitis that is still in my system I can't perform to anywhere near the best of my ability, which is something that I want to have happen when we play a show.

"We will make it up to everyone who bought tickets, and I want to personally send a big thank you to all of those people who have sent me their good wishes. We will be back."
