British punk rockers Fat White Family have pulled out of a European tour with the Black Lips to allow singer Lias Saoudi time to recover from an illness.

The group had to axe a gig in Paris, France with the Veni Vidi Vici hitmakers last week (27May14) after Saoudi was struck down with the mystery ailment, and the rockers have now had to cancel the rest of their supporting slots with the Lips.

A recent post on the band's Twitter.com page reads: "Lias needs some time off to recuperate so we are forced to cancel next week's shows with the Black Lips."

Shield your eyes as Austin's most vibrant music festival marks its seventh year from May 2nd-4th 2014. With The Zombies, The Horrors and Temples on this unique bill, are we looking at Austin Psych Fest's best year yet?

It took just one year for it to expand into three whole days of psychedelic magic and will this year take place at the Carson Creek Ranch playing host to some of the most well respected bands of the genre in the business. We've had six years so far of this inimitable energy and with old lucky number seven comes a line-up that is arguably the festival's most interesting yet.
