While She Sleeps singer Loz Taylor has pulled of out shows on the band’s current tour, citing “personal reasons”.

In a statement, the Sheffield band said: “Due to personal reasons, unfortunately Loz will not be performing at the final few shows in Europe.”

The band added that they would be recruiting a stand-in vocalist to replace Taylor rather than cancel the remaining dates in support of last year’s So What? album.

“We need your voice. Let’s make this happen, It takes more than a member down to stop a Sleeps show. We are incredibly sorry but we will not let you down.

"Thank you for understanding & respecting our privacy in times like these."

It's unclear when Taylor will return.
