Julian Casablancas Cancels Tour, Cites “Lack of Inspiration”

Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas and his band The Voidz have axed their whole impending tour of the USA. The group, who released their oddball debut album Tyranny last year, have cited a lack of inspiration as the reason for this cancellation.

The tour, which included a big date at the 4th Beach Goth Festival, was set to take place across September and October. In a recent statement, the band said that they felt there was not enough inspiration to create an exciting experience for fans. The full statement reads as follows:

With great regret, we need to cancel our upcoming shows in North America. We had set out to do something a bit different with these shows and create more of an experience that would be inspiring to our fans as well as to the band. In order to make this work we needed many pieces to fall into place that just didn’t. Everyone will, of course, be given a full refund. We are going to regroup and re-approach this in the way it was intended, and soon.

Whether or not the band will find time to work on a new show and reschedule the tour remains to be seen, especially as all signs are currently pointing towards new music from The Strokes.
