Fever Ray Cancels Remaining Tour Dates

Fever Ray has canceled all remaining tour dates for 2018, including sets at Pitchfork Music Festival Paris and Iceland Airwaves in November. Karin Dreijer broke the bad news on Facebook and revealed the canceled dates are due to her struggles with anxiety and panic attacks.

“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,” she wrote. “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.”

Dreijer did a slew of performances in the U.S. and Europe earlier this year in support of her 2017 album Plunge. Both the album and tour marked her return after an eight year hiatus.
