Strasbourg's concert venue La Laiterie has announced the cancellation of several upcoming shows, scheduled from 09/10 to 22/10. Those include one of the two French dates of Accept's 2014 tour, one of the French dates of In Flames' 2014 European tour and one of the French dates of Anathema's 2014 European tour.

Originally Jesper Strömblad cited recovery from alcoholism as the main reason for leaving popular Swedish band In Flamesback in 2010.

Indeed it would appear that Jesper would've preferred the band to stay a melodic death metal band as opposed to the more alternative metal/rock approach they have adopted over the last decade or so.
