TV On The Radio have had to cancel the European leg of their upcoming tour, which was set to start today in Milan, Italy. Their drummer, Jahpet Landis, has been hostpitalized. See a note from the band below. The American dates of the tour, in the replies, will not be affected.
It is with much regret that due to a health emergency, TV On The Radio have been forced to cancel their upcoming Europe/UK tour which is due to start this Friday. Drummer, Jahphet is in the hospital; he will be ok but is not able to travel at this time. TV On The Radio would like to apologize to their European & UK fans and appreciate everyone’s understanding and well wishes for Jahphet at this time.
Divers have announced new tour dates in support of their fantastic debut release, Hello, Hello, which drops February 17th via Party Damage/Rumbletowne Records. You can find the tour dates in the replies along with another new song called "Lacuna."
Purity Ring's upcoming album, Another Eternity, has quickly jumped near the top of my Most Anticipated list, and the band is touring to support the sure-to-be stellar album. Check out all the dates in North America and Europe in the replies.
The shows will be special events featuring the band playing songs that have never been heard live before, as well as, readings of excerpts from their favorite books, stories, and poems, and a Q&A session conducted by the band with the crowd each night.
We have some unfortunate news to share: we are no longer on the February tour with Dads and Roger Harvey. Dropping a tour is a tough thing to do, and I want to be very open about why we came to this decision. I have struggled with anxiety and depression, and it eventually built up to the point where touring in February was daunting and unmanageable. I recently started to get serious about treatment, but we want to have a few months off while I pursue the goal of dramatically improving my mental health. We plan on continuing to tour and make music, once I take the proper time to address my health. We sincerely apologize to Dads and Roger...
As I posted 3 days ago, I am taking the appropriate time to assess these very serious allegations against me and I am not taking them lightly. Until I can do that in a complete manner with all the information I have at my disposal, I will not be continuing with any current touring activities for the time being.
