U.K. pop-rock duo the Ting Tings, best known for their hits "Shut Up and Let Me Go" and "That's Not My Name," have canceled its upcoming U.S. tour due to a hand injury suffered by singer/guitarist Katie White.

In a press statement, the band confirms that White has been diagnosed with a partially ruptured tendon in her left hand, and has been advised to rest until the medical issue heals. The tour was scheduled to kick off on Thursday night (June 18) in Berwyn, Ill.

"Really sorry to be cancelling our U.S. tour. My left hand has been playing me up for a while and unfortunately, it finally decided to throw a tendon tantrum," says White in a statement. "We tried to scale back the upcoming shows to avoid making it worse, but unfortunately, I have a torn tendon that the doctors have said only rest and physiotherapy will heal... back soon."

The Ting Tings released their third studio album, Super Critical, in 2014, after finding U.S. success with their 2008 debut, We Started Nothing.
