Aussie rockers Tonight Alive have announced a hiatus from international touring, in order to “address and prioritise” their “mental and physical health”.
The band, who performed as part of the first-ever Good Things Festival lineup earlier this month, have now cancelled their upcoming US tour, telling fans that their tour schedule “has been demanding and truthfully the makeup of our entire reality”.
“Reaching the end of a particularly turbulent year we are seeing the need to address and prioritise our mental and physical health. So in the interest of personal well-being and professional longevity Tonight Alive will be taking a hiatus from international touring,” the group said in a statement.
The band said they are “treating this as a matter of the heart, mind, body and soul”, and apologised for letting fans down.
“Despite the intensities of 2017/2018, we have continuously felt the love, connection and support from you all. Thank you for exploring and expressing yourselves so purely and fearlessly in the Underworld era,” they said.
“We are inspired by you and immensely grateful for this chapter of memories. Please be kind to yourselves. We won’t be far away.”

Tonight Alive released their latest album Underworld back in January, and toured around Australia in May.
