The announcement comes a few months after The xx concluded the first leg – and, it seemed then, the only one – of their Asia tour, which includes Singapore, Japan and South Korea, in July. The I See You Tour is in support of the band’s third studio album with the same name.
Formed in London in 2005, The xx are Romy Madley Croft (vocals, lead guitar), Oliver Sim (vocals, bass guitar), and Jamie Smith (beats, MPC sampler). The group gained prominence with their Mercury Prize-winning self-titled debut album which features hits like “VCR”, “Crystalised” and “Island”.
