The xx Invade North America with Friendly Fires, Play Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver
UK buzz band the xx have announced a series of North American tour dates that conclude a busy 2009. The group rode a wave of blog hype to the release of their self-titled debut, which came out earlier this week via Young Turks.

The tour kicks off on November 11 with a show in New York and will be followed by a hefty amount of tour dates that include Canadian stops in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
