If you are a Jinjer fan who waits for the Jinjer U.S tour, I have bad news for you. Jinjer canceled their upcoming tours to help out Ukrainians.
Who is Jinjer Band?
Jinjer is a metal band which is formed in 2008 from Ukraine. The founding members of the band are Maksym Fatullaiev, guitarist Dmitriy Oksen, bassist Oleksiy Svynar, and drummer Vyacheslav Okhrimenko. Despite the be a founding member, none of the founding members were part of the band anymore. Even the band could not be popular with the founding members. Jinjer becomes popular with the new band members. Those band members are Tatiana Shmailyuk, Roman Ibramkhalilov, Eugene Abdukhanov, Vladislav Ulasevich. Although they are a new band, the band released eight studio albums. With their albums, Jinjer won the “Best Ukrainian Metal Act” prize twice.
Why Jinjer canceled U.S. Tour
The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine affects every aspect of our lives. We have been seeing the consequences of the war day by day in the music world. While some musicians try to help Ukrainians like Decapitated guitarist Vogg on the ground, other musicians canceled their tours like Bring Me Horizon. This time Jinjer canceled their U.S tour to help families in Ukraine.
St. Louis’ The Factor announced the Jinjer U.S tour cancelation on social media. St. Louis’ Factory’s social media post includes the following message below:
“It is with great sadness that JINJER has been forced to cancel their upcoming US tour dates.
“As the band and their families reside in Kyiv, their focus is on the safety of their families and their country.
“We all hope for a quick and peaceful resolution.
“All refunds will be processed automatically within 30 days of cancelation.”
Also, The Factory announced that they donated money to support Ukraine. The Factory said, “In light of these events and to do our part in supporting the overwhelming humanitarian effort that is underway in Ukraine, #TheFactorySTL is making a donation of $5,000 to the United Hatzalah.”
Jinjer canceled U.S tour. As you know, Jinjer needed to join Slipknot as a support band on the Knotfest Roadshow 2022. However, we do not have any info about whether they canceled this show or not. We assume that they will cancel Knotfest Roadshow concerts too. If you have tickets for the concert in Knotfest, you might not see the Jinjer band on the Knotfest RoadShow. However, we might be wrong. That’s why you need to keep your eyes on announcements about those days:
