"I’m devastated to be pushing off shows even longer," Valentine artist Snail Mail told her fans.
Maryland indie musician Snail Mail has been forced to reschedule her upcoming US, UK and EU tours due to her need to undergo vocal cord surgery.
The healthcare move has three months’ recovery time, with dates originally scheduled for 2021 and early-2022 now booked in for – or soon to be announced for – later in 2022.
“Lindsey here – unfortunately, with terrible news this time," Snail Mail (Lindsay Jordan) explained.
"I’ve been struggling with my vocal health more and more each year. I lose my voice after a couple days of singing. I went to see an ENT last week and they found massive polyps in my vocal cords (surprisingly from vocal trauma due to talking!! shocker lol) that need to be operated on to prevent permanent damage to my voice. The recovery time is three months/speech therapy and in an effort to make sure the rest of the tour can happen, I will be postponing our first US tour which was supposed to begin this week as well as our initial UK/Euro tour :(. I’m devastated to be pushing off shows even longer. My team is working overtime to reschedule everything that we’re postponing–we will have everything rescheduled imminently. Thank you so much for all the support you’ve given the new record so far.”
Jordan released her second album as Snail Mail, Valentine, on November 5 via Matador. Previewed singles from the album came in the form of its title track and ‘Ben Franklin’.
