Xiu Xiu to Release EP, CD, and Tour North America This Fall


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Xiu Xiu have announced a myriad of projects to come out this year, including a collaborative EP with Grouper, a covers EP, and a full length album on 5RC.

First off, they're soon to release a covers EP on Acuarela in which they'll be covering artists like Bauhaus, Nina Simone, and Alex Chilton. Release details are sketchy at this point, but it looks like it will be released soon.

Xiu Xiu will also release a full length album on Kill Rock Stars imprint label 5RC this fall titled The Air Force. It was produced by Greg Saunier of Deerhoof and will be released on September 12th. They'll tour in September, October, and the beginning of November with Dirty Projectors and Cong for Brums, as they go through the US and Canada.

They've also added that they're working with Grouper on an EP of ambient music due out this fall on Slender Means Society. The music came about out of a friendship, and they worked together to create music outside of their normal spheres of influence.
