Published Feb 12, 2013The XX and Grizzly Bear both released buzzed-about new albums in 2012, and they will go about promoting them this June by joining forces for a North American tour.
The outing is a relatively brief one, since it's made up of a modest eight shows in June. In addition to a handful of U.S. gigs, the trek includes two Canadian stops: June 6 in Toronto and Montreal the day after. See the schedule below.
Beyond these collaborative dates, both Grizzly Bear and the XX have plenty of shows of their own in the coming months. Grizzly Bear have shows in Asia and Europe, in addition to a U.S. run with Owen Pallett, while the XX previously booked a couple of Canadian dates on their extensive world tour.
Grizzly Bear will be promoting Shields, and the XX will be supporting Coexist.
