The Horrors' Faris Badwan

The Horrors have postponed gigs at Oxford Academy (21 October) and Bristol Academy (23 October) as singer Faris Badwan battles voice problems.

The London band have already been forced to pull out of shows in Edinburgh and Liverpool this week.

Writing on the the band's website frontman Badwan said he had returned to London to see a doctor.

He apologised to ticket holders but said the band were left with "no choice but to cancel".

He added: "If there was any other solution I would jump on it with more enthusiasm than Josh at a Snoopy-branded accessories fair."

Details of the rescheduled gigs have yet to be announced.

The Horrors released their critically acclaimed third album Skyling in July.
