Circa Waves have postponed some album launch shows after frontman Kieran Shudall is admitted to hospital

Circa Waves have been forced to postpone four of their upcoming album launch shows after frontman Kieran Shudall was admitted to hospital.

Shudall was diagnosed with viral pericarditis, an inflammation around the heart, and was unable to perform. The four shows were due to take place in Kingston, Bournemouth, Brighton and Totnes, although the remaining three dates in York, Liverpool and Dundee look set to go ahead.

The band shared the news with fans via Twitter, with Shudall apologizing for letting them down. He expressed his disappointment, saying “Believe me I really fucking want to!”, but expressed optimism that he would be back on his feet soon with “some strong meds”.

The band’s fifth studio album, ‘Never Going Under’, is set to be released this Friday (January 13) on Lower Third/PIAS.
