Beady Eye has bowed out of the rest of their scheduled tour dates in August, including their slot at this year’s V Festival in the U.K., so Gem Archer can recuperate from his injuries.

The guitarist was recently hospitalized with severe head trauma following an accident that occurred on August 1, but has since been released and is recovering at home, where he remains under observation.

“Beady Eye regret to announce that they are cancelling their performance at V Festival and their remaining scheduled shows and promotional commitments in August,” writes the band in a joint statement on their website . “The band apologize to fans but under the circumstances feel they can not perform without Gem and want to focus on supporting him throughout his recovery.”

Beady Eye's next scheduled concert is set to take place on November 7 at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.
