Another Cancellation …

The String Cheese IncidentDue to doctor' orders, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have been forced to cancel their Japanese and Australian tours. This means, of course, that they will be unable to perform in Red Marquee on the Saturday evening of the festival.

Alec Ounsworth, the guitarist and vocalist of the highly-touted, Brooklyn-based act, began to have problems with his voice during the band's recent European dates resulting in his doctor telling him to take a break and rest his vocal chords.

From the band's official site:

"We're sorry to announce that we have to postpone our upcoming trip to Japan and Australia. Unfortunately over the course of our recent European tour Alec's voice started to give out on him, and in order to avoid any permanent damage to his vocal chords he's going to have to take some time off of touring. We're really sorry for the late notice, and we wish this wasn't the case, but we promise to make it over as soon as we can. If you bought tickets for our shows in Sydney or Melbourne you'll be able to get a refund for your tickets."

There has been no official word yet on who Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's replacement will be.
