Statement by Mike Peters
It is with regret, that personal circumstances have forced the rescheduling of all The Alarm dates for Nov / December to May 2017.
My wife Jules has recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is about to undergo an intense regimen of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and so I need to be by her side and focus on her well being and the care of our two children (Evan aged 9 and Dylan 12).
With the aid of her amazing NHS breast care team and surgeon Mr. Khattak, Jules is focused on making a full recovery by 2017 when it is hoped that normal service will resume.
I totally understand that this is an inconvenience for all concerned - fans, promoters, band and crew, but the intensity of the situation has meant the rescheduling / postponement of all my 'live' touring commitments for the remainder of 2016.
Thankyou for your support and understanding and I look forward to seeing you again in May.
Love, hope and strength
