The Bray trio's collaboration with Janis Ian, 'Better Times Will Come', is out this Friday.
In a statement shared on their social media platforms, Wyvern Lingo have announced that they will have to reschedule their upcoming headline shows in Limerick, Doolin and Listowel – as well as their support slots for Kodaline in Cork, Galway, Belfast and Derry – after band member Karen Cowley tested positive for Covid-19.
The Bray band were due to play Upstairs at Dolans, Limerick on Friday, November 12, followed by the The Attic at Hotel Doolin, Co. Clare (Saturday, November 13) and Mike The Pies, Listowel, Co. Kerry (Wednesday, November 17).
In the statement, Karen noted that, after "a week of feeling really unwell with viral pharyngitis," she found out that she also had Covid-19.
"I am so disappointed that after 1 year and 9 months of a pandemic, just when we are finally about to go on tour, this is the moment that I get Covid," she continued.
She urged people to hold onto their tickets, as Wyvern Lingo are working with the venues to organise new dates.
"I am sorry to have let anyone down this week," Karen resumed. "I can't tell you how excited we were to finally get back on the road. All other tour dates will go ahead as planned (thankfully Caoi and Saoirse are healthy Covid free queens by some miracle) so we should still be seeing you guys in Galway on the 20th, Leap on the 26th, Cork City on the 27th and Whelan's on the 30th Nov and 1st of Dec with some instores and nights supporting Kodaline in between and after."
The deluxe edition of Wyvern Lingo's Awake You Lie is out November 26 – with the band's collaboration with Janis Ian on 'Better Times Will Come' out this Friday.
