Grammy-nominated group have canceled their European dates that were supposed to commence on Tuesday, February 26, prompting speculations that they are breaking up. On their official blog, the band wrote that they need a break to settle on some "internal issues" before embarking on a tour with in Spring.

Part of the statement read: "There are a lot of internal issues that have been going on in this band for quite a while now. A lot of it started right around the time we were gearing up for the RIOT Tour in the US. We were able to fight through all of it for this long but unfortunately we weren't able to keep it together long enough to make it through 'til the end of this tour."

"We really feel that taking this time is going to give us a chance to get away and work out our personal issues at home and on our own terms. We just aren't willing to risk the life of our band over one tour. That probably sounds terrible right now, to say that finishing a week of shows wasn't worth it... but if we can use this next month wisely then we will be a lot healthier for the tours ahead."

The rumors on their split have been detected since earlier this month when guitarist Josh Farro said that the focus media put on the band was only on their lead singer Hayley Williams. "We are a team. We are a band. It's not just Hayley- it's not her band. Just because she's the lead singer doesn't mean she's the only one involved," Farro fumed.

The dates affected in the cancelation are Portsmouth (February 26), Nottingham (February 27) and Glasgow (February26). As confirmed via an e-mail to MTV, they will begin a tour with Jimmy Eat World on April 1 in San Antonio and shoot a music video for "That's What You Get" on March 2 and 3 with director Marcos Siega.
