In a blog post helpfully titled “US, Canada Tour Datesssssssss you Hobo!,” Xiu Xiu have announced a run of 2012 North American tour dates. They’ll call on Dirty Beaches for East Coast support and move West, where Yamantaka // Sonic Titan will take over opening duties when they land in Seattle. Father Murphy will open every single stop but the first one in Raleigh, NC.
