The xx are hitting the road to tour behind their surprisingly bright new album I See You, and they’re bringing along the next man and woman up in the moody, electronic R&B sounds on which they made their name. The band just revealed the dates of their North American tour with the added bonus that Sampha and Kelela will open for them on various dates.

Sampha is gearing up for his debut album Process after years of guest vocals and work with SBTRKT. Kelela hasn’t released a full-length since 2013’s excellent Cut 4 Me but she did release an EP in 2015 expected to drop a new album in 2017.
