Queens of the Stone Age will no longer be playing this year’s Reading & Leeds.

In a tweet, Josh Homme and company write that “restrictions and logistics” are preventing them from making the trip to the U.K. next month to play dual festivals.

“We hope everyone has a GREAT time at the festivals and look forward to returning to the U.K. in 2022,” the band says.

While QotSA will no longer be rocking Reading & Leeds, Biffy Clyro has joined the lineup. The bill also includes Liam Gallagher, Machine Gun Kelly, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Two Door Cinema Club, Yungblud, The Struts, FEVER 333, iDKHOW, The Kid Laroi and Wolf Alice, among others.

Reading & Leeds 2021 takes place August 27-29.
