In Flames cancel remaining Mayhem dates, offer explanation

In Flames have announced they will not be performing at their remaining dates of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, nor at their scheduled off dates. Apparently, a one of members currently has a family member in need and as such, the band is leaving the road.

A post from the band to fans addressing the situation can be read below:

It is with huge regret that today with immediate effect In Flames must cancel their current US shows as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and their own US Headline shows. But due to a serious terminal illness of one the band’s immediate family members they feel they have no option.

We have had the most amazing and fun times as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and we are truly grateful for all the support the whole festival has shown

We will be back at the start of 2012.

Once again our apologies

In Flames
