London: Electronic pop trio London Grammar have pulled out of two European festivals, Sziget in Hungary and Lowlands in Holland.

Their management cited lead singer Hannah Reid`s "vocal fatigue" as the reason behind the cancellations, reportedly.

The band also comprises Dan Rothman and Dominic `Dot` Major. "Due to a lengthy touring schedule over the last year and a half, Hannah has suffered with vocal fatigue which has forced us to cancel, at last minute, a number of recent shows. In order to maintain Hannah`s voice and all of our well being, we have made the decision to withdraw from some of our upcoming festival performances," statement said.

"We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this causes and regret any disappointment of both our fans and festival organisers. Nevertheless we feel that our decision to reduce our workload is of great importance at this time. We hope you can understand and forgive us for the cancellation."

Earlier this year, the band pulled out of T in the Park, again because Reid had lost her voice. London Grammar`s If You Wait is one of the ten best-selling albums of 2014 so far.
