The xx will tour North America this summer, according to invites mailed to fans this week. The sneaky announcement mirrors their strategy late last year of mailing out free tickets to a then-unannounced European tour, which is now under way. U.S. destinations revealed so far include Dallas, TX, Portland, OR, and Philadelphia, PA. See a couple of the invites below.
Pitchfork has contacted the xx’s representatives for comment. The group’s new album I See You is out January 13 via Young Turks. Read Pitchfork’s new Cover Story, “I’ll Be Your Mirror: How the xx Found Themselves—and Their Vibrant New Sound—in Each Other.”
