The DevilDriver Australian tour 2012 has been cancelled just days before it was scheduled to kick of in Brisbane on Friday, before heading around the country.

The shock announcement came from tour promoters Soundwave Touring this afternoon who confirmed the cancellation citing frontman Dez Fafara’s recent diagnosis of Pneumonia, restricting him from flying for two weeks.

“I’ve NEVER cancelled a tour before. EVER…” wrote FaFara in a statement. “I have Pneumonia and I’m restricted from flying for at least 2 weeks. So unfortunately we have to cancel our Australian tour.”

“I respectfully apologize to all our Australian fans, Six Feet Under; Darkest Hour and the folks at SW touring who worked so hard to put this tour together. Thank you for your support. We’ll make it up to you on the next tour.”

Ticket holders can go back to the point of purchase for a refund.
