(PR) Keane frontman Tom Chaplin has checked into a rehab from treatment of alcohol and drug abuse. As a result the band had to scrap a number of North American tour dates. The tour was set to kick off next month but all dates in September have been postponed. According to the band's website, make up dates will be announced soon and it does look like the October dates are still a go. The band had canceled some shows in Europe earlier this month, saying at the time that Chaplin was suffering from exhaustion.
Chaplin said in a statement on the band's website, "I've been having to deal with an increasing problem with drink and drugs, and the time has come to get the professional help I need to sort myself out. I feel desperately disappointed to be letting down our fans, but I want to get myself right now so that I can be back on the road for the rest of the year."
