Tonight Alive have taken to social media to announce the cancellation of their upcoming US dates in order to “prioritise our mental and physical health”.

Just a matter of weeks ago, Tonight Alive performed a series of stunning live shows across Australia as part of the very first Good Things Festival.

Touring in support of their latest album, Underworld, the band was set to hit the road again next month for an extensive tour of North America. However, Tonight Alive have now announced the cancellation of these dates in order to work on their “mental and physical health”.

Taking to Twitter last night, the band shared a note attributed to all their band members to break the news.

“It’s with heavy but knowing hearts that we have come to the decision to cancel our upcoming US tour for Jan/Feb 2019,” they began. “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,” they continued. “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.”

Having wrapped up a series of UK dates last month, Tonight Alive’s US tour was set to see them perform an extensive number of dates between January and February.
