The End Records has confirmed that Dutch rock band THE GATHERING have had to cancel the first month of their European "Homelands" tour due to an illness. Singer Anneke van Giersbergen is said to be suffering from an obstinate bronchial and sinus infection, which has taken a turn for the worse over the past few days. In a statement, the group said, "The band very much regrets having to take this step, but Anneke's health will have to come first."

Because of the severity of the illness, the band is forced to cancel all shows in Europe and the Netherlands scheduled between April 19 and May 28. "We are consulting with promoters to try to reschedule the concerts to later this year so that tickets would remain valid," the band's management said in a statement.

THE GATHERING's latest album, "Home", was released today (April 18) in North America (via The End Records) and over the weekend in Europe via the band's own label, Psychonaut Records.

THE GATHERING will resume touring in June.
