Sidecho Records act the Spores have announced the cancellation of their UK tour. The band issued a press release that included the following explanation:

Following months on the road in Europe The Spores tour with Eagles of Death Metal sadly ended in disarray earlier this week as tempers frayed and the band found themselves knocking seven bells out of their drummer. Singer Molly McGuire and guitarist Greg Biribauer became embrolied in fisticuffs with their drummer Kenny Pierce in Barcelona, at the end of their mainland European leg of their tour. Drummer Kenny had refused to help McGuire and Biribauer and instead insisted on travelling separately from them in the Eagles of Death Metal's rather more swanky tour bus. Trouble had been building for some time and so the 3 band members, in time honoured tradition, resorted to violence; Kenny went to hit Molly, and Molly in self-defence, kicked his ass in front of everyone. Witnesses state the EODM guys had to break up the fight and they took Kenny (the drummer) on the bus with them. Sadly, this has left The Spores temporarily drummer-less and unable to complete the UK leg of the tour.

Of course with press releases like this the truth is open to interpretation. Regardless, the band plans to return to the UK this June. The Spores are supporting their recent full length Imagine The Future.
