As if news of the February 9th release of Hot Chip‘s most complete work to date, aka as the U.K. outfit’s fourth studio album, One Life Stand, wasn’t enough to get you all excited, now we know when and where we’ll be seeing them when they embark on a world tour early next year.
Following a round of previously announced in the U.K., Hot Chip will team up with fellow high-profile British outfit The xx (now a trio) for what is currently a five-date North American tour. We say currently because of the noticeable gap between the tour’s first date, April 16th in Oakland, and the second date, April 19th in Chicago, it does make an appearance at next year’s Coachella Music Festival, which runs from April 17-19 in Indio, CA, seem very likely. However, the band’s publicist would not confirm our obvious conclusion.
Ticketing information for the upcoming dates is still forthcoming. As mentioned, One Life Stand hits stores on February 9th via Astralwerks.
