A little over a week ago we announced the dates of the much anticipated Violent Night, Deadly Night Tour -- the headlining US trek of Murderdolls, which features Joey Jordison's (Slipknot, Rob Zombie). Well, the band has been forced to cancel the tour. "Due to an unforeseeable family emergency Murderdolls have been forced to cancel the upcoming Violent Night, Deadly Night Tour," the band said in statement.

"These decisions are never easy to make and we did everything we could to keep from having to cancel, but this was unavoidable. We'll do our best to make up the dates in 2011. For those who bought tickets, refunds are available from point of purchase. Sorry ghoulscouts but we'll see you all soon!"
