Mastodon have cancelled their upcoming tour dates to deal with a "personal family matter."
All of the band's shows from August 7 to September 3 – including their scheduled appearance at Reading and Leeds festivals – have been pulled.
The band say in a statement: "Mastodon regretfully announce they must cancel their upcoming shows that were to take place from August 7 through September 3 due to a personal family matter.
