Jinjer granted permission to exit Ukrain for European tour; issue video for “Call Me A Symbol”

Jinjer have revealed that with the support of the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture, they have been given permission to leave their native Ukraine “in order to help their countrymen the best way they can – through music.” This effectively confirms Jinjer’s upcoming appearances on the summer European festival circuit.

In addition to Jinjer being granted permission to exit Ukraine and playing EU festival dates this summer, they also announced new EU + UK tour dates with Bullet For My Valentine and Atreyu for 2023! The full list of dates can be found below.

Jinjer bassist Eugene states:

“We are very honored to announce that together with the help of the Ukrainian Ministry Of Culture, we have successfully been granted permission to travel abroad as ambassadors of our country to raise funds and awareness about the war raging back home. This is a huge honor for us as a band and as citizens. We will do our part to make sure that this war stops as soon as possible! Come support, dance and scream your hearts out for Ukraine!”

Additionally, Jinjer and their label, Napalm Records have launched a new line of merchandise to help raise funds for the people of Ukraine. You can find that merch at this location.

News of the band’s newly confirmed touring plans and merch comes with the surprise release of a video for their track “Call Me A Symbol”, taken off their latest critically acclaimed album, Wallflower (Napalm). Eugene adds: 

“I think this video for ‘Call Me A Symbol’ will forever hold a special and unique place in our hearts as a band. Filmed on our short but awesome European Tour in 2021 tour that almost did not happen because of the pandemic, and now released at such a dark time in which our country has been invaded and there is war on the streets of our home. I really hope this video and this important time in history gives people a new perspective that there are always two sides to everything. Good and Evil, Just and unjust – cherish the good times and face the bad head on… but never ever give up.”
