In Flames have been forced to drop off the remaining dates on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. Below is a statement released by the band via their publicist yesterday.

"It is with huge regret that today with immediate effect In Flames must cancel their current US shows as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and their own US Headline shows. But due to a serious terminal illness of one the band's immediate family members they feel they have no option.

We have had the most amazing and fun times as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and we are truly grateful for all the support the whole festival has shown We will be back at the start of 2012."
