The band have added additional dates to their UK tour.
The xx have extended their run at London’s O2 Brixton Academy next year to seven nights.
The week-long residency will set a new record at the venue for the longest string of performances by a band besting Rammstein, Nine Inch Nails, Hard-Fi and the Prodigy, who have previously played five consecutive nights.
The band’s UK and European tour starts on February 8, in Stockholm, Sweden, and includes stops in Nottingham, Cardiff and Manchester.
Presale tickets for the tour went on sale on Tuesday 22nd November and tickets for all dates went on general sale today – Friday 25th November.
The trio are currently touring in Eastern Europe, playing shows in Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland and Lithuania together with FACT favourite Jenny Hval over the next few days before finishing the year with a gig in Japan.
The band’s third album, I See You, is due on January 13. Hear the Hall and Oates-sampling first single, ‘On Hold’, below.
