Art-rock/obscure pop fiends, take note. Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu (both on the Kill Rock Stars record label), will share the bill this Fall for ten dates in the Eastern half of the US, as well as a few Canadian dates.

2010 has been a busy year for both bands: Deerhoof is currently at work on a new album, due for release early next year; Xiu Xiu has been touring extensively throughout the year in support of their February release Dear God, I Hate Myself.

Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu have joined forces in the past, when they played Joy Division's 1979 debut Unknown Pleasures in it's entirety at Austria's Donaufestival earlier this year. Plus, Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier is pretty much an unofficial member of Xiu Xiu, so hopefully on this tour we'll get more Joy Division collaboration between the two groups.
