Ed MacFarlane from Friendly Fires

Friendly Fires have postponed the start of their UK tour, as singer Ed MacFarlane recovers from a bout of laryngitis.

The St Albans three-piece pulled a gig on Saturday at Southampton (12 November).

The band have now postponed gigs at Nottingham's Rock City (14) and Newcastle's O2 Academy (15).

A message on the group's website said Ed MacFarlane's voice was "still recovering".

They apologised to fans and said that the shows would be rescheduled.

The tour is due to resume in Manchester on Thursday.
