Xiu Xiu announce 2017 North American tour dates in support of new album FORGET

Don’t forget! Jamie Stewart and his California-based apocalypse-pop project Xiu Xiu have a new album coming February 24 on Polyvinyl. In case you forgot that we reported about the album already, it’s their 11th one together now, and it’s called FORGET, presumably because you can forget about NOT pre-ordering the heck out of it right now! And/or also because the cover art’s caligraphy translates literally to “we forget,” about which Stewart adds: “To forget uncontrollably embraces the duality of human frailty. It is a rebirth in blanked out renewal but it also drowns and mutilates our attempt to hold on to what is dear.”

What? You forgot what we were talking about already??

Umm: the new Xiu Xiu album, Forget, which was produced by John Congleton, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, and Xiu Xiu’s own Angela Seo. Don’t you remember, it also features such superstar guests as “fabled minimalist composer Charlemagne Palestine, LA Banjee Ball superstar commentator Enyce Smith, Swans guitar virtuoso Kristof Hahn and legendary drag artist and personal hero of Xiu Xiu, Vaginal Davis.” Jeez. You’d better listen to the album track “Wondering” down below and get your shit together. Cuz there’s gonna be a bunch of newly-announced tourdates down below the song, and I don’t want you getting confused by the time you get down there.
