Razorlight have postponed three dates on their US tour because of Keane frontman Tom Chaplin’s battle with drink and drugs.

Mr Borrell and co. were due to play a string of dates across America with Keane over the coming weeks.

But since Tom Chaplin entered rehab for his drug and drink problem, Razorlight have been forced to delay shows at the New York Bowery Ballroom, Los Angeles Roxy and in San Francisco.

Johnny Borrell said in a statement: “Because of Keane pulling out of their US tour dates. We are going to have to reschedule our own shows in NYC, LA and San Francisco.

“We are all completely disappointed, but we will be coming back over for substantial touring in December or January. So enjoy the record until then, and we'll see you soon.”

The band released their eponymous second album Stateside on Tuesday (August 22).
