Guitarist Nick Bockrath requires surgery...

Cage The Elephant have been forced to cancel their European tour.

The band's new album 'Ready To Let Go' is out now, with the American group setting their sights on Europe.

Renowned for their animated stage presence, a set at PINKPOP saw guitarist Nick Bockrath injure his leg.

Attempting to play on, the band completed two additional shows, before the guitarist was advised to seek immediate surgery.

The shows include their headline slot at Heaven, and this weekend's Isle Of Wight Festival.

Here's the full statement:

Catch Cage The Elephant at the following shows:

12 Amsterdam NLD at Melkweg Max
14 London Heaven
15 Isle of Wight Festival
