Wolf Alice have postponed their upcoming UK tour due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.
Ellie Rowsell and co - who had already called off three shows in Glasgow and two in Dublin - made the decision to delay their whole January tour out of "concern" for their fans safety.
Taking to Instagram, they wrote in a statement: "We are absolutely gutted to announce that we have decided to postpone our upcoming tour this January.
"As the Covid pandemic seems to be getting worse and with an overwhelming number of daily cases it feels like a particularly volatile time to go ahead with such a large tour.
"People's safety and access to our concerts is of the utmost importance to us and we feel that is something we can't ensure at these large indoor shows."

They continued: "We are already working to get rescheduled dates confirmed ASAP and will be making an announcement in the following weeks, all tickets will remain valid for re-scheduled shows and refunds are available if you are unable to attend the new dates. "
The Yuk Foo four-piece apologised to fans for their decision, but added they felt like they were making a "responsible decision," adding: "We are sorry to do this but we feel like this is the responsible decision for the current climate of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the band - completed by Theo Ellis, Joff Oddie and Joel Amey - recently came ninth in Radio X's Record Of The Year Countdown with their epic single The Last Man on Earth.
The song was the lead track to be taken from their Blue Weekend album, which was shortlisted for last year's Mercury Prize - giving the band three consecutive nominations for the honour.
The band previously took home the prestigious gong in 2018 with their second album Visions Of A Life, while their 2015 debut My Love Is Cool also earned them a nod.
