Warpaint to open on the xx's major fall tour

June 22, 2010 |  2:38 pm


The gauzy L.A. quartet Warpaint just landed one of the most plum opening slots on the fall touring circuit. In September and October, the band will warm up crowds for the xx for 10 dates across America and Canada, including a Sept. 22 stop at the Hollywood Palladium. The xx, we can confirm, are putting on one heck of a show these days, so bravo on that booking, Warpaint.

Hopefully, the sight of all those thousands of sad, black-clad kids will prod them to finish their much-awaited debut full-length with local producer Tom Biller for Rough Trade. Full schedule after the jump.
