Merchandise, the most critically buzzed-about band to rise from Tampa in recent memory, is cutting short its world tour after singer Carson Cox was injured in a fall. 

The band's Twitter account posted on Tuesday that all of the remaining dates on the tour were canceled.

The post said that Cox "lost consciousness" and fell backstage after the band's Nov. 5 show in Leeds, England, fracturing his jaw and breaking several teeth. It also said Cox will see a specialist there to repair the damage, and that he's expected to "make a full recovery." The band plans to make up the tour dates in 2017.

For hot indie band Merchandise, coming home to Tampa is complicated

Merchandise was set to play a show in Paris tonight. The band embarked on a world tour in September behind the release of its latest album, A Corpse Wired For Sound. They played Crowbar in Ybor City on Sept. 26 near the start of that tour.
