Micachu & The Shapes Cancel U.S. Tour, including Phoenix Date

If it sounds too good to be true it probably is: Micachu & The Shapes have canceled their U.S. fall tour, including a September 14 show at The Rhythm Room, which Michael Lopez previewed in fawning terms a few weeks back. "Scheduling conflicts," were cited as the reason.

No doubt more than a few people will be disappointed, as the band has gotten rave reviews, including this blurb from Pitchfork:

"(Jewellery is) pretty much the freshest thing to come along so far in 2009... Levi and her band sound more like the future than the past, at a moment when we desperately need some more future."

In related news, the band has announced they'll fly to the States in October just to play Tucson.

Just kidding... but wouldn't that be funny, Phoenix?
