AFI is scratching the remainder of its spring tour due to singer Davey Havok's voice problems. His doctors are recommending that Havok stop singing immediately or risk serious damage to his vocal chords.

The affected shows begin tonight (March 5) in Lake Park, Fla., and run through March 19 in Denver. "We have never cancelled any shows and are deeply disappointed to have to cancel these shows," the band says in a statement. "Unfortunately our only course of action is clear. We truly regret any inconvenience to our fans." Refunds for the nixed gigs are available at points of purchase.

In the wake of this news, Thursday and Coheed & Cambria have set up three shows together, beginning tomorrow in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Beginning March 21 in Fargo, N.D., Thursday begins a run of dates with Piebald, Head Automatica and the Bronx. Those acts will be replaced by Poison The Well, Engine Down and Spitafield beginning April 12 in Sayreville, N.J.

AFI was touring behind its sixth album and DreamWorks debut "Sing the Sorrow," which debuted last March at No. 5 on The Billboard 200. The single "Girl's Not Grey" hit No. 7 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.
