The Orbitsuns cancel UK tour after double tragedy

The Orbitsuns

The Orbitsuns have cancelled their UK tour after two band members lost close family members just before they were due to fly out.
The wife of one band member and the brother of another both died suddenly on Thursday, forcing the Detroit-based outlaw country outfit to scrap their entire tour.

The band had been due to headline the opening night of the Maverick Music Festival in Suffolk last Friday, and were also booked to play in Leicester, York, Bedford, London, and at the Leadenhall Market Americana Festival in London on July 10.
