THE LILYS have pulled out of the support slot on Kula Shaker’s UK tour as lead singer Kurt Heasley (near left) faces losing his voice forever if he strains it at all in the next six weeks.

The band were due to accompany Kula Shaker on the tour from March 25 until April 10. Heasley is suffering throat complications after contracting chronic laryngitis and has been told not to sing by doctors until the infection has healed – or face never being able to sing again.

The release of The Lilys next single ‘Touch The Water’, scheduled for April 20, has also been put back as a result of the diagnosis. A replacement support for Kula Shaker is currently being decided.
