Sum 41 have had to pull out of their UK co-headlining tour with New Found Glory, due to injury .
The Kerrang! tour, due to take place in February, will also feature letlive and While She Sleeps. The band will no be replaced by The Blackout.
In a statement frontman Deryck Whibley said:
I feel really terrible about letting down the fans. I injured my back and the doctors are saying that I could be in a wheelchair. So, as much as I wanted to be able to do it, I've got to look at reality, and for the first time I’ve got to listen to somebody else and not just myself. We're all really upset about this; we’ve had such a great relationship with our UK fans. We were really looking forward to this tour.
The tour kicks off in Dublin on February 5 and will also include dates in Southampton (7), Bristol (10) and Birmingham (16).
It is scheduled to conclude at London's Roundhouse on February 17.
