Former Bikini Kill vocalist and current member of The Julie Ruin, Kathleen Hanna, has struggled with Lyme disease for the past few years. It was documented in the recent film The Punk Singer, but she was thought to have been on the road to recovery; The Julie Ruin were set to tour all around Europe and North America in the coming months. However, it seems that her illness is flaring up again which has made it impossible for those tours to happen so she can undergo a "difficult 3-month course of treatment," as pointed out in the statement below. Find all of the cancelled tour dates after the statement. Get better soon, Kathleen!

"Hey All, we are ridiculously sad to announce that all shows/appearances are cancelled until September 2014. Kathleen has been outspoken about her struggle with Lyme Disease and she is currently having a health crisis and has been advised by her doctor to start a difficult 3-month course of treatment immediately. The treatment plan will make it impossible for her to travel. We are disappointed to postpone these appearances, however we are confident that taking this time off will allow Kathleen to heal so that we can continue touring in the future. Thank you so much for your support and we are so sorry we can’t come out and see you right now."
