Hard rock act Korn has canceled the quintet of U.S. dates remaining on its Pop Sux! Tour due to lead singer Jonathan Davis' strained vocal cords. A statement from the band's label, Epic, says the shows have been scotched at the behest of Davis' vocal coach and doctors in an attempt to prevent permanent damage to the singer's vocal cords.

Even though the band is canceling shows in Binghamton and Utica, N.Y.; Erie and Reading, Pa.; and Bridgeport, Conn., Korn's Canadian fans won't be disappointed. The group, along with opening acts TRUSTcompany and Marz, will go on with shows tonight (Dec. 4) in Toronto and tomorrow in Montreal, both of which had been rescheduled from the tour's first leg earlier this year.

Last month the group released the "Korn Live" home video, chronicling of the band's June 10 show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, as well as a reissue of the band's latest Epic/Immortal studio album, "Untouchables," with a different bonus DVD. "Untouchables" debuted in June at No. 2 on The Billboard 200.

Here are Korn's canceled tour dates:

Dec. 7: Binghamton, N.Y. (Broome County Arena)
Dec. 8: Erie, Pa. (Erie Civic Center)
Dec. 10: Utica, N.Y. (Memorial Coliseum)
Dec. 11: Reading, Pa. (Sovereign Center)
Dec. 12: Bridgeport, Conn. (Arena at Harbor Yard)
