"I will now have to take a break from touring to take care of myself and restore my health," says Fever Ray

Fever Ray has cancelled her upcoming European autumn tour, citing anxiety as the reason behind the move.

"For seven years I did not enter the stage, for five years I did not enter an airplane," she says in a statement posted to Twitter. "It is a disorder that always lurks in the shadows that I have had to work carefully with and around, and that I never really know when it will strike or how much it will affect me."

She continues: "The last month though has been rough and my anxiety has started to escalate. I will now have to take a break from touring to take care of myself and restore my health.”

Fever Ray, otherwise known as Karin Dreijer has toured the world this year in support of her 2017 album Plunge, taking in dates across Europe and the US.
