Citing a “personal tragedy,” the band announced the bad news on its website today while assuring fans that its planned December run through Europe is still a go.

The international band whose members hail from the U.S., England and Australia had planned to begin its latest North American tour with an appearance at the “Corona Capital Festival” in Mexico City Oct. 15. With dates scheduled through mid-November, stops were to include San Francisco (Oct. 25); Denver (Nov. 2); Dallas (Nov. 5); Atlanta (Nov. 11); Baltimore (Nov. 16); New York City (Nov. 18) and Toronto (Nov. 19). Also canceled is The Boxer Rebellion’s planned appearance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, Nov. 4.
