This follows US tour cancellations of fellow Brits The Rakes (split up) and Echo and The Bunnymen ( IRS wanted to double tax their tour). This time around it seems to be visa problems, IE work permits for the band causing them to pull out of their commitment. They were also scheduled to support the Pixies for 2 shows in New York City and Chicago.
