Xiu Xiu Share New Single “Lawrence Liquors”

Xiu Xiu Announce New Single "Lawrence Liquors," New Album + Tour This Winter. Xiu Xiu will start their tour February 19th in Santa Barbara, California.

With a little less than a month before the release of the band’s next record, Xiu Xiu is sharing their next single, “Lawrence Liquors” from their upcoming record, Angel Guts: Red Classroom (Polyvinyl – 2/4). Listen to the track above. The band also is heading out on an extensive North American Tour in 2014. Beginning and ending in California, the continent-spanning tour finds Xiu Xiu stopping in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and more. Full tour dates above.

While on the road, Xiu Xiu will be supporting their upcoming record, Angel Guts: Red Classroom, out February 4th on Polyvinyl in North America and Bella Union in Europe. The album is the beginning of Xiu Xiu’s descent from grayness into the deepest blackness endurable. It is the sound of Xiu Xiu’s death. This is a bold proposition, even for a band that has never so much pushed the envelope as pulled it (forcefully) away from the line other musicians are willing to toe. And now, in what is unquestionably their darkest hour, Xiu Xiu have lit the envelope on fire and are using it as a torch to light the path ahead.

Unbearably dark, yet incredibly illuminating, with Angel Guts: Red Classroom Xiu Xiu continues to forge (and at times risk) its reputation as avant-garde pioneers. It is the work of a band unraveling to its core and exposing the boldness within. Xiu Xiu may be dead, but its will is more alive than ever.
