The rescheduled dates are expected to be announced soon.
Just Mustard have released a statement on their social media platforms today, announcing that this week's shows at The Limelight 2 in Belfast (tonight, June 13), Dolan's Warehouse in Limerick (June 15), and the Róisín Dubh in Galway (June 16) will be rescheduled.
Last week, the Dundalk band also had to postpone their gig at Cyprus Avenue in Cork (June 8), noting that vocalist Katie Ball was unwell.
In this afternoon's social media post, the band note that "unfortunately Katie is still too unwell to play".
"Sorry again for any inconvenience and we can't wait to play these shows when Katie is better," the statement continues. "Will update you on rescheduled dates asap and all tickets will be valid."
Earlier this month, Just Mustard scored their first Top 20 album on the Official Irish Albums Chart – with their new LP, Heart Under, debuting at No.17.
The Dundalk band's second studio album – and their first since signing to Partisan Records – was described as a "thoroughly fascinating record" in Will Russell's review of the album for Hot Press.
"Comparisons to Seventeen Seconds-era Cure will also rightly be made, and there’s a good dollop of Aphex Twin in the mix as well," Russell wrote. "Regardless, the best advice is to quit the taxonomy, and explore the fresh territory this remarkable band are mapping."
They join the likes of Fontaines D.C., IDLES, John Grant and Laura Marling at Partisan Records, having signed to the Brooklyn and London-based label last year.
“Our plan was to make an album in 2020 and get it out,” Just Mustard's guitarist, David Noonan, recently told Hot Press. “When the pandemic hit, there were vinyl delays and stuff. Partisan said, ‘There’s no point rushing – it’s not going to come out any time soon. Take your time.’ They gave us space to do that. We didn’t feel we were rushing it. We did the bulk of recording in October 2020 and spent from then until April finishing it. And then Katie re-did all the vocals.”
