The XX have a got a lot on their metaphorical plate at the moment, what with the recent down-sizing of a member and dates in the UK planned for 2010 and whilst any normal band would've probably taken a breather by now, they've instead decided to helm the main support slot for Hot Chip on their 2010 US tour.
Hot Chip recently announced news of their fourth L.P One Life Stand, due on February 8th of next year and whilst February is mostly taken up with UK dates, they've decided that mid-April would be perfect for a trip Stateside.
The five date US tour begins on April 16th in California and finishes on the 23rd in Washington DC. The full details can be seen below.
