Animal Collective have canceled all July tour dates, including appearances at this weekend’s Camp Bisco and Forecastle Festival, due to illness.

The band said in a statement:

“We deeply apologize and tried our best to make it work with an alternate set, but ultimately we didn’t feel like we were giving fans what they deserved from an Animal Collective show. We are working on rescheduling the non-festival dates as soon as possible. Again we send our sincerest apologies to fans anticipating these shows, especially considering the cancellations earlier this year.”

As the band noted in their statement, this is the second time they’ve been forced to postpone tour dates in 2013. In March, they scrapped dates with Dan Deacon due to frontman Avey Tare’s severe case of strep throat.
