Following a recent stint over in the UK, which included the band performing some select acoustic sets, Australia’s Tonight Alive have announced their hiatus from touring internationally for the foreseeable future.
The band made this announcement via a statement published on their social media channels, explaining that they “need to address and prioritise our mental and physical health”.
This decision has also resulted in the band being forced to cancel their forthcoming US tour, which was set to begin next month.
You can read the band’s full statement below.
It’s with heavy but knowing hearts that we have come to the decision to cancel our upcoming US tour for Jan/Feb 2019. Our touring schedule over the years has been demanding and truthfully the makeup of our entire reality. Reaching the end of a particularly turbulent year we are seeing the need to address and prioritise our mental and physical health. So in the interest of personal well-being and professional longevity, Tonight Alive will be taking a hiatus from international touring.
We are treating this as a matter of the heart, mind, body, and soul, and hope you can accept our sincere apology to those we are letting down. Despite the intensities of 2017/18, we have continuously felt the love, connection, and support from you all. Thank you for exploring and expressing yourselves so purely and fearlessly in the ‘Underworld’ era.
We are inspired by you and immensely grateful for this chapter of memories. Please be kind to yourselves. We won’t be far away.”
The band’s fourth studio album, ‘Underworld’, was released back in January through Hopeless Records/UNFD.
