American rockers The Used have cancelled all of their upcoming European tour dates after parting ways with their management team.

The band was due to play a series of shows across the continent, including an appearance at Britain's Download festival in June, as well as shows in Russia, but the musicians have scrapped all their gigs to focus on restructuring their team of representatives after splitting from their longtime managers.

A statement from the band reads, "It is with great regret that we have been forced to cancel our upcoming appearances in Europe, U.K. and Russia, due to unforeseen circumstances resulting in a parting of ways with our management team.

"We deeply apologize to our fans who were looking forward to these shows. We will reschedule these shows as soon as possible. In the meantime, we have begun writing and recording for our upcoming album. We look forward to returning with a new album and tour dates soon.”
