It’s unfortunate news for fans of the wildly eclectic group, who have aroused quite a bit of interest in 2007 off the back of their acclaimed debut album ‘With Lazers’, as they were set to be a highlight act of several NYE/NYD festivals.
Rodrigo Gorky of the band recent told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac of tension in the band, revealing that it had led to them cancelling several shows. “We are having internal problems,” he stated. “We are trying to sort things out but meanwhile we are just going to have to cancel some of the shows… We are sorting things out right now.”

Dec 30 – Falls Festival, Victoria
