Indie Rock Group Snail Mail Postpones Tour So Singer Lindsey Jordan Can Get Vocal Cord Operation

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Snail Mail, the indie rock group founded and fronted by Maryland native Lindsey Jordan, is delaying its U.S. tour so Jordan can rest and recover after an operation on her vocal cords.

The singer and guitarist shared a note on social media saying that, for more than a year, she's dealt with vocal issues that cause her to lose her voice after a couple days of singing.

A doctor found "massive polyps" in Jordan's vocal cords that need to be operated on to "prevent permanent damage to my voice," she wrote. Jordan wrote recovery time is three months and she'll have to undergo speech therapy after the procedure.

Snail Mail was set to start a tour in support of the band's second full-length album, "Valentine," on Saturday with a concert in Richmond, Virginia. Now, the group is scheduled to start touring with a pair of dates at Philadelphia's Union Transfer in April 2022.

"I'm devastated to be pushing off shows even longer," Jordan wrote. "My team is working overtime to reschedule everything that we're postponing -- we will have everything rescheduled imminently."
