The British alternative rock band Tindersticks has canceled its scheduled performance in Israel on Wednesday.

The band was scheduled to appear at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv in two weeks.



"It is with sadness that Tindersticks announce the cancellation of their forthcoming concerts in Tel Aviv," read an official statement on the band's web site.

"When agreeing to play our music in Israel we, perhaps naively, believed that the music we make is beyond political considerations. Over the past weeks, the pressure exerted on us by people and organizations, some close to us, has shown us that this is not the case. It is difficult to defy a rapidly growing movement with whose aims we agree, even if we are not wholly convinced by their methods," the band said.
