Fever Ray have cancelled their remaining shows in 2018.

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.
