James Blake cancels previously postponed tour dates... or maybe postpones previously canceled ones; whichever one is more subversive and cool

Earlier this fall, we stopped the motherfucking presses to tell you all about how James Blake had to postpone a few US dates in order to go win himself a Mercury Prize real quick (which he did win, by the way) for Overgrown (TMT Review). Initially, he took to his Facebook page to assure all the poor losers in the Southern United States that those dates would be rescheduled for 2014.

But wouldn’t you know it? In typical “I Just Won a Mercury Prize” rockstar fashion, Blake (or actually, probably his butler!) has logged onto his Facebook once again, and, after posting a few Instagram photos of food and his high score in Candy Crush Saga, he confirmed that those southern US dates — in Nashville, Houston, Austin, and Dallas, specifically — have been called off all-together! Oh cruel world. Check it:

It’s with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the four postponed US shows in March 2014. A number of events have conspired against us leading to it becoming impossible to fulfill the dates. Sincere apologies to those who bought tickets. Refund info to follow asap. HQ

Sorry, Southern US. :( If it’s any consolation, it’s NOT gonna be BALLS-COLD FOR THE NEXT EIGHT MONTHS where you live.
