Xiu Xiu were set to begin their fall tour on Monday in St. Louis but the whole tour — U.S. and European dates — has been canceled, with their label, Polyninyl, stating, “Jamie needs to take some time to focus on his mental health and get the proper rest he needs in order to do so. We appreciate your understanding.”

As part of the statement, Polyvinyl also wrote “We urge you all to take care of yourself and one another. Mental illness should never be treated lightly. If you or a friend ever feels lonely, depressed, sad, or confused there are resources available to you, now and always,” and they shared the numbers for the US Crisis Text Line (Text “Start” to 741-741-2917) and the Trevor Project for LGBTQ youth (1-866-488-7386).

Xiu Xiu released Girl with a Basket of Fruit earlier this year. You can listen below.
