The xx Add Dates After NYC Armory Run
The xx Tour
London-based indie pop band The xx are making their way around the United States this spring on a string of dates. Following a previously announced residency at New York City’s Park Avenue Armory in March (styled after their run at the Manchester International Festival last year), The xx will play shows in Wilmington, DE at the World Café Live on April 1; Raleigh, NC; Athens, GA; Oxford, MS; Memphis, TN; and Marfa, TX. There’s no word on any new material, but the band noted on their Facebook they would be trying out a few new things, so fans will probably hear the beginnings of a new sound. Ticketing information and onsale dates can be found on the band’s website.
Formed in Wandsworth, London, in 2005, The xx have achieved much in their short years in the music business. Their 2009 debut album, xx, was ranked highly on many best-of-the-year lists, and, in 2010, the band won the Mercury Music Prize for their debut. They’ve cited a varied group of artists as their influences, including Jimi Hendrix, The Slits, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, The Cure, The Kills, Aaliyah, and more.
