Jessica Lea Mayfield was supposed to begin a tour this week in support of her new album Sorry Is Gone, but she sadly had to cancel her October dates after getting into a car accident. Here’s Jessica’s statement (via Stereogum):

Hi everyone. Last month, I sustained multiple serious injuries in a car accident where I was rear ended by someone who had fallen asleep at the wheel. I’ve been hoping that I’d be able to recover in time to play these upcoming October tour dates. Unfortunately, I still have a ways to go. A recent doctor’s appointment revealed some neurological issues along with new injuries in my neck, ribs, knees and hips that will require more physical therapy and rehabilitation. Suffice it to say, this has put me under financial, mental and physical stress. I am absolutely heartbroken, but I have to cancel my October tour dates. This is an extremely tough decision to make, and I’m so thankful to have such a supportive band, manager, label and booking team behind me that values my well being above everything else. To those who bought tickets to these shows, thank you so so much! I’m really looking forward to seeing all of you ASAP! <3

Popgun, who were presenting Jessica’s NYC show at Baby’s All Right on 10/21, say the show is “hopefully to be rescheduled in 2018.” Stay tuned. Updated tour dates are listed below.

We hope you get well soon, Jessica!
