The Jungle Giants have been forced to postpone their upcoming Love Signs tour due to the unfolding coronavirus crisis currently rocking the country.
The band released their fourth album of the same title towards the tail end of July, and had been planning on playing some of the biggest home-soil shows of their career this September.
In a post to Instagram, the band relayed that they are (rightfully) “devastated” by the news.
“We’ve been dreaming of playing these songs to you live even before recording the album, but the reality at the moment is with multiple ongoing lockdowns and lingering national restrictions, it’s not possible for us to do.
“The day WILL come. We just have to ensure everyone’s safety for the moment.”
“Postponing is really the last thing we’ve wanted to do,” they wrote in the caption. “Our industry has been receiving a major fuckin and so many artists and teams behind the music around Australia are struggling.
“BUT the refusal to give up is as strong as it ever has been. We WILL be playing this album onstage to you live as soon as we can. We honestly can’t wait for that moment.”
All current tickets will be valid for the new dates. Ticketholders will receive an email regarding the postponement, where a refund can be requested if the new date is unsuitable.
The tour’s two support acts – Bag Raiders (DJ Set) and Lazywax – will be on board for the new dates.
