Greta Van Fleet have just announced that they are postponing their European shows due to illness. The tour, which would be starting tomorrow (Feb. 22) in Spain and concluding in mid-March will be rescheduled for the fall. Singer Josh Kiszka is suffering from an upper respiratory infection and doctors suggested he take a break in order to have a full recovery.

The announcement was made on the band's Twitter:

It now feels necessary for the entire band to recalibrate our balance, both physically and mentally. Rather than continuing on to more performances and exacerbate things further, we have made this decision in order to give you the full Greta Van Fleet experience when we meet again," they said, adding that the tickets will be honored at the rescheduled dates. We are heartbroken in sharing this setback with you and hope you can understand this painful decision.

This announcement comes just weeks after the band had to postpone Australian concerts because Kiszka had laryngitis. We'd like to wish Kiszka all the best in his recovery, especially so they can get to working on that new album bassist Sam Kiszka mentioned they'd be releasing this year.
