Jinjer Officially Cancel North American Touring Plans To Focus On Relief Efforts In Their Native Ukraine, Launch Charitable Shirts


Ukrainian progressive metal outfit Jinjer have confirmed earlier reports that they have put their music career on hold. The outfit will instead be focusing on relief efforts in their native Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion of the country. To that end, the band have cancelled all of their immediate upcoming North American dates, including their prized spot on Slipknot‘s ‘Knotfest Roadshow‘ tour alongside In This Moment.

The group’s bassist Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“Thank you all for your concerned messages and prayers sent to us over the last week, we may not answer but we are reading them and they mean the world to us. As you know, there is war raging through the streets and cities of Ukraine right now.

Many people have little or no food or water and are very afraid of what tomorrow may bring. Together with Napalm Records, we’re releasing two new T-Shirt designs to raise funds to be donated to various charities throughout Ukraine to help with medical and food supplies, water and so on.

If you cannot donate then please share this or any news related to what’s really happening here. Each sale may save somebody’s life in Ukraine. Thank you.”

Both of those shirts can be purchased here with 100% of all proceeds to go towards charity organizations dedicated to helping provide essentials and aid to those affected by the ongoing conflict.

The band are next expected to hit the road in early May for their Latin American touring plans.
