Fever Ray have scrapped their touring plans for the rest of the year, including their forthcoming performance at Iceland Airwaves in November.

Swedish singer/songwriter and Fever Ray vocalist Karin Dreijer issued a statement on Facebook detailing the reason for delaying tour plans.

“Many of you know already that I’ve been struggling with general anxiety and panic attacks for a long time. For seven years I did not enter the stage, for five years I did not enter an airplane. It is a disorder that always lurks in the shadows that I have had to work carefully with and around, and that I never really know when it will strike or how much it will affect me. I am very thankful for the past seven months, that I have been able to tour and to meet you wonderful and amazing people. The last month though has been rough and my anxiety has started to escalate. I will now have to take a break from touring to take care of myself and restore my health. We are canceling the forthcoming shows this autumn. It is a difficult decision because I love my band and my crew, and I am so grateful for the love we have received from all of you while when doing this show. Hope to see you soon”.

The band's last album was 2017's Plunge.
