Alongside debuting new single "soshy" back in August, Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring announced an international tour outing for late 2021 and early 2022 in support of 2020's WOMB. Today, they've taken to social media to share that they must regretfully postpone their North American shows — and outright cancel their UK and EU concerts for the time being.

In a tweet, Purity Ring shared a statement about their decision to move the fall dates to next spring.

the decision of whether or not to play a show during a pandemic currently falls on the artist's shoulders alone when it should be the responsibility of public health officials, national and local leaders, and the music industry at large to ensure the safety of artists, crew, concert-goers and our families. having watched loved ones hurt, hospitalized and killed by the virus, we feel it would be insensitive and reckless to carry on with tour as if the pandemic isn't happening.

Check out the full statement from the band below, as well as the revised tour itinerary — including the new dates for concerts in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal.

Purity Ring recently gave Exclaim! a look inside the jam space where they'd been rehearsing for the tour.
