OVERKILL KILL MANAGER; TOUR OVER: Probably, as DoneWaiting point out, it's because he was also their bookings guy, Urge Overkill have sacked their manager and as a result axed their tour. The curious thing is the band's own website desn't seem entirely sure what bookings they might have had made, beyond the support slot for Sign of the Fox at the Viper Room's "rose for the lady sir?" Valentine's gig:

We apologize for any inconvenience, but the Valentine's Day show at the Viper Room and any other US shows that may have been booked have been cancelled. UO has parted ways with their manager, and are currently writing new material and preparing to record the much-awaited new record! Their previous manager, Beth Winer, will be handling their affairs until a new full-time manager is found. Rest assured, however, that the U.R.G.E. train is still rolling and there are plenty of great things to come!
