No one does alt pop quite like The xx. London's sultry three-piece first captured our hearts with their breakout, self-titled LP in 2009, which featured the forever-classic, "Crystalised"—a song with hypnotic opening notes that would make fans out of listeners all over the board. Fast-forward eight years, and band members Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, and Jamie Smith are giving the masses what they asked for—another album.
The Mercury Prize-winning group's third studio release, I See You, is set to hit shelves on January 13 via Young Turks. In anticipation of the big day, the trio have now announced a North American tour which will kick off in San Fransisco on April 15, the day after their weekend one Coachella performance. Hitting cities like Phoenix, Houston, Vancouver, Austin, and New York before wrapping on May 26 in Portland, ME, the run will be their second of 2017, with the first being in their native EU.
Fan presale tickets to the "On Hold" crafters' epic tour will be available beginning January 10 at 12 p.m. EST, and to the public on January 13 at 10 a.m. EST. Make sure to Track the trio on Bandsintown so you don't miss them when they perform their new album in a city near you.
