As well documented in recent film The Punk Singer, Hanna has suffered from the illness for the past few years. Hanna and co were scheduled to tour Europe and North America, however the infliction seems to have flared up again.

A statement from Hanna reads that the postponed dates are necessary to “allow Hanna to heal so that they can continue touring in the future”. Stereogum note that the Le Tigre musician will embark on a “difficult three-month treatment regimen” to battle the disease.
