Experimental group Xiu Xiu have cancelled their upcoming tour dates to "focus on mental health".

The group were due to tour North America until late October before heading to Europe, and then the UK in November.

Polyvinyl, the label that put out their Girl with Basket of Fruit album in February, revealed the news in an Instagram post, writing, "Xiu Xiu will bve cancelling their upcoming US and European tour dates with refunds available at the point of purchase. Jamie needs to take some time to focus on his mental health and get the proper rest he needs in order to do so. We appreciate your understanding."
