The xx is set to begin an international tour November 28, with stops in Europe, South America, and Japan. The band will hit the road in advance of the January release of I See You, having dropped off the Hall & Oates-indebted lead single, "On Hold" last week.
To celebrate, The xx has apparently been mailing out tickets to shows to lucky fans in select cities. The letters come in envelopes marked with the band's "X" logo, and read, "We would like to invite you (and a friend) to our show at [venue]." Some fans who received the tickets have surfaced on social media to shout out the band and thank them for the invite.
