After announcing that they’d be performing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, Ghost pulled out just hours before showtime, and will now perform at a yet-to-be-announced later date.

In an Instagram post, the band wrote, “Children of the World!…more specifically those of you who had just started to prep your couches up for tonights’ @jimmykimmellive show. Well, it turned out that we had a bit too much going on in Reno” — the site of the band’s tour kickoff next week — “getting all our s*** together for the tour.”

The announcement continued, “Our good friends at Kimmel offered us to come back & play the show at a later date during our now imminent US tour. So cool your jets for today but get ready to rock with us over the coming weeks. Are you ready?”

As previously reported, Ghost’s co-headlining arena tour with Volbeat and Twin Temple will start January 25 in Reno, Nevada.  The Swedish rockers’ fifth album, Impera, will be out March 11.
