Sydney based quartet The Jezabels have just announced a massive North American tour taking them through the Fall. The dates come off the back of their latest LP Synthia, which was released independently back in February in the US market via Metropolitan Groove Merchants Distribution. The shows are positioned to make up for lost time, following keyboardist Heather Shannon’s ovarian cancer relapse forcing their previously scheduled dates earlier this year to be cancelled. The band issued the following statement about the new dates:
‘We are so thrilled to be announcing this new tour after the heartbreak of cancelling our tour earlier this year. Heather is feeling strong again after her treatment and we are all impassioned and eager to finally give SYNTHIA the tour she deserves.
We were so touched by the outpouring of support toward us over the course of this year, we cannot think of any better way to show our gratitude than bringing SYNTHIA out on the road. We cannot wait to introduce her to you all, to see your beautiful faces and to celebrate the end of this unique and challenging year.
It’s going to be smashing!’
