Snail Mail postpones tour due to vocal cord surgery, reschedules Milwaukee show for next September

Milwaukee will have to wait quite a bit longer to see Snail Mail. The indie-rock singer-songwriter had been scheduled to kick off her U.S. tour this week, with a stop at Milwaukee's Turner Hall Ballroom on Dec. 7, but those plans have been upended by news that she needs vocal surgery.

In a statement, songwriter Lindsey Jordan said she'll be postponing shows for the next three months as she recovers. Her Turner Hall Ballroom date has been rescheduled for Friday, Sept. 2, 2022.

Here's her complete statement:

Lindsey here - unfortunately, with terrible news this time. I’ve been struggling with my vocal health more and more each year. I lose my voice after a couple days of singing. I went to see an ENT last week and they found massive polyps in my vocal cords (surprisingly from vocal trauma due to talking!! shocker lol) that need to be operated on to prevent permanent damage to my voice. The recovery time is three months/speech therapy and in an effort to make sure the rest of the tour can happen, I will be postponing our first US tour which was supposed to begin this week as well as our initial UK/Euro tour :(. I’m devastated to be pushing off shows even longer. My team is working overtime to reschedule everything that we're postponing--we will have everything rescheduled imminently. Thank you so much for all the support you've given the new record so far.  

Snail Mail's acclaimed new album "Valentine" came out earlier this month.
