After announcing in September that they'd be scrapping their upcoming U.S. tour dates, Faith No More have now announced that all planned shows for 2022 have been cancelled.

Vocalist Mike Patton had previously said that "due to mental health reasons, I cannot continue with the currently scheduled Faith No More and Mr. Bungle dates", with the band supporting his decision to cancel touring plans: "We believe that forging ahead with these dates would have had a profoundly destructive effect on Mike, whose value to us as a brother means more to us than his job as singer," they wrote.

"He can count on our 100 per cent support to do what he needs to do to get things right. Just as we also ask for your support right now."

In a new statement posted on December 10, FNM confirm that it's not just U.S. dates that are affected, but also Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Europe, too.

"Unfortunately due to our current challenges, we aren’t going to be ready to perform for the upcoming Australian, New Zealand and UK / European tours," they state. "To play at anything less than 100 per cent after so long is not an option for us. We apologise to all of you ticket holders, and are forever grateful to our fans for your support and understanding."

Kerrang! sends our best wishes to Mike and the rest of the band.
