The XX Announce More North American Dates, Return to Toronto, Montreal

The XX Announce More North American Dates, Return to Toronto, Montreal
Since releasing their hype-deserving self-titled debut in 2009, bleak UK pop stars the XX have been on a non-stop world tour that continues to expand as the months wear on. The group have just announced the latest batch of dates, which will see them playing travel Yahtzee from the end of this month through October.

 This tour kicks off with a set at Glastonbury Festival, which will be followed by countless other festivals throughout Europe. Then, in September, the band will begin a North American expedition in Los Angeles. Joined by Warpaint for all dates, the XX's North American run will include Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal on this trip.

 All of this time spent on the tour bus is paying off in many ways. As previously reported, the XX's production guru Jamie Smith is using his time to remix Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here in its entirety. A release date for that project has not yet been announced, however.
