Earl Sweatshirt announces that he's cutting his current tour short by eight dates to finish his upcoming sophomore album.
We've got some good/bad news for Earl Sweatshirt fans. The good news is that a follow-up to 2013's Doris is dropping soon; the bad news (for those of you with plans to see Earl in the next two months) is that he won't be completing his current tour. With eight dates remaining on his "Wearld Tour" -- most of them at European festivals -- Earl has announced that he's "physically and mentally at the end of [his] rope" and that he wants to "get this album out to y'all while it's still fresh."
The cancelled dates include stops in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, The UK, British Columbia (Canada), Chicago and L.A. View the full list here.
