Snail Mail was scheduled to return to the road for the first leg of her tour supporting her new album Valentine (order on vinyl) later this week. However, she's postponed the November and December US dates, along with the February and March UK and Europe dates, because she needs vocal cord surgery. She writes:
Lindsey here - unfortunately, with terrible news this time. I’ve been struggling with my vocal health more and more each year. I lose my voice after a couple days of singing. I went to see an ENT last week and they found massive polyps in my vocal cords (surprisingly from vocal trauma due to talking!! shocker lol) that need to be operated on to prevent permanent damage to my voice. The recovery time is three months/speech therapy and in an effort to make sure the rest of the tour can happen, I will be postponing our first US tour which was supposed to begin this week as well as our initial UK/Euro tour :(. I’m devastated to be pushing off shows even longer. My team is working overtime to reschedule everything that we're postponing--we will have everything rescheduled imminently. Thank you so much for all the support you've given the new record so far.
