Sister Sin Cancel Remaining 2012 Tour Dates as Singer Liv Jagrell Undergoes Vocal Surgery
Swedish metal band Sister Sin have called off the rest of their dates on their 2012 tour because frontwoman Liv Jagrell will have to undergo surgery on her vocal cords.
Jagrell won't take missing these dates lightly. In an interview with Loudwire, she expressed her passion about being on the road and being onstage. “I’ve learned that I love to be on tour and I love to be onstage and I only feel that I am myself. I’m one hundred percent Liv when I’m onstage. I feel that’s the only time I’m just me” Jagrell told us.
The band released a statement regarding Jagrell's condition and the cancellation of dates via their Facebook page:
We´re coming to you with some bad news today....
-Liv has had issues with her voice starting way back in 2007-2008 & it turned out to be a node on her vocalchords. To avoid surgery she has been very strict with warmups, vocal exercises and what not but never the less things have taken a turn for the worst lately. After re-visiting her doctor last week it became apparent that surgery is now needed & unavoidable.
-So it is with great regret we are forced to cancel the announced shows and planned dates for the rest of the year.
This is very common amongst singers & expected recovery is only two months so we will be back stronger than ever in early 2013 and for the upcoming US tour in February.
Cant wait to see you all again on the road & thank you all for your understanding & support!
The band was supposed to hit the road in promotion of their latest record ‘Now and Forever.’ Sister Sin are still scheduled to hit North America in 2013 with Doro. For a full list of cities and dates, go here.
