So Nathan ‘Wavves‘ Williams has cancelled the forthcoming Wavves UK and European tour, citing personal reasons.
Those personal reasons might relate to the band’s performance at the Pitchfork stage at Primavera Sound, where Williams had an on-stage fight with Ryan Uls – details of which are all here.
According to Williams, in a now deleted post on his blog:
"I think in the back of my head I knew I wasn’t exactly mentally healthy enough to continue to tour the way I have been since February. Honest truth is this has all happened so fast and I feel like the weight of it has been building for months now with what seems like a never ending touring and press schedule which includes absolutely zero time to myself. I’m sorry to everyone who has put effort into this and to everyone who supported me. Mixing ecstasy valium and xanax before having to play in front of thousands of people was one of the more poor decisions I’ve made(duh) and I realize my drinking has been a problem now for a good period of time. Nothing else I can do but apologize to everyone that has been affected by my poor decision making. I made a mistake. Not the first mistake I’ve made and it for sure wont be the last. I’m human. Don’t know why I chose the biggest platform I could imagine to lose my shit, but that’s life. You live and you learn."
Anyway, the rest of the tour might have been cancelled for totally different reasons. But probably not.
