London trio The xx today follow up Friday's announcement of their third studio LP, I See You, with the news that they'll embark on a European tour early next year. Although the press has just been alerted to the tour today, the band gave some of their fans the scoop yesterday by sending them free tickets in the mail.
The new dates extend from February 9 in Stockholm to March 17 in Cardiff, and add to the existing upcoming dates in Eastern Europe with Jenny Hval, a one-off date in Japan in December, and several South American dates in March and April. As you count down the days, help pass the time by revisiting I See You's lead single, "On Hold."
Presale for the newly announced shows opens on Tuesday, November 22 at 5 AM EST, but you can get early access to tickets if you sign up to the band's email list before 10 AM on November 21.
