Rockers Modest Mouse have cancelled all their upcoming summer (13) shows to concentrate on recording their new album.

The band's axed tour of Europe and the U.K. includes an appearance at Scotland's T In The Park festival next month (Jul13), as well sets at Germany's Hurricane and Southside Festivals, and Open'er in Poland.

The cancelled dates also include stops in France, Belgium, Denmark, Holland and Switzerland.

A statement from the band reads, "After much thought, we have decided to cancel our E.U./U.K. tour to continue work on our forthcoming album. We do appreciate our fans and promise that we will make it up to you next year. We look forward to sharing our new music with the world next year."

The musicians premiered some of their new material at America's double weekend Coachella festival in April (13).
