After cancelling their appearance at Psycho Las Vegas this year, Witchcraft were about to instead play their first US show in 10 years this Monday at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC, followed by a show two days later in Boston at Paradise Rock Club. But we just got word that both shows are now cancelled due to "serious illness" (hopefully not too serious!). Refunds will be issued.

UPDATE: the Swedish band issued a statement:

US shows Cancelled.
Dear friends. Due to serious health issues Witchcraft will not be able to perform the planned shows on NYC and Boston. We apologise deeply to our fans, the promoters and everyone involved. Ticket refund at place of purchase. Witchcraf.
