Feed The Rhino call off tour

Feed The Rhino have cancelled their December UK support tour with Sikth, citing the challenges of balancing their band duties with the rest of their lives.

The Kent five-piece feel they’ve become victims of their own success – to the point that they can’t appear at the run of five dates next month.

The band say: “For the last six years FTR has encompassed our lives. But behind the scene normal life carries on. We all try to juggle the band with our other commitments – families, mortgages, businesses.

“The older we have got, and the more successful the band has grown to be, the harder the juggling act has become. For some in the band, committing to any more shows for the remainder of the year is an impossible task.”

They vow to return in 2016 “better than ever,” adding: “We need to take a breath from being FTR to see through a mountain of personal commitments, so we can continue with the band next year.”

Apologising to Sikth and their backstage team, they continue: “Here’s to a better 12 months.”

Sikth have named Destrage as replacement support act for the shows.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
