Wax Idols were to have begun a tour this week at Brooklyn's Elsewhere, one of a few East Coast shows with Planning for Burial. That tour has been canceled and the band are going on "indefinite hiatus," as main member Hether Fortune announced on Wax Idols' Facebook:

It pains me to announce that, due to personal issues, our upcoming east coast tour with Shadow Age has been cancelled. Refunds will be made available for anyone who bought advance tickets. Beyond the tour, Wax Idols will be taking an indefinite hiatus.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this band through the 9 years since I put “All Too Human” on Myspace. I never could have foreseen how that one song would forever change my life. What started as a glorified solo project has morphed and evolved many times to include & highlight the talents of some extraordinary people and I remain humbled and eternally grateful for all of their contributions to this dream of mine. I’m no soothsayer - I don’t know what the future holds - but for now, we say goodbye.

While the tour is canceled, Hether Fortune will be playing the Elsewhere show on Friday (8/31) solo with Planning for Burial who will be playing "a quieter, intimate version of his set" (tickets), and she'll also perform solo at Basilica Soundscape.

Wax Idols released Happy Ending earlier this year.
