Pop rockers Smash Mouth have postponed their upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand until next year (13).

The Walkin' on the Sun hitmakers were scheduled to kick off their trek Down Under next week (18Oct12), but the gigs have been pulled for unknown reasons.

A statement issued by promoters at Big Apachee reads: "Smash Mouth are reluctantly cancelling their Australia and New Zealand 2012 Tour, but will reschedule and come back in 2013... Smash Mouth wish to apologise to all their fans for the disappointment but are glad to be able to return in 2013."

The band is currently on the road in the U.S. and are scheduled to perform at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida on Thursday night (11Oct12).
