Perfume Genius is going on tour with The xx

The pair will head out together for a handful of North American dates.

So, how’s this for a pairing, eh?

Perfume Genius recently gave a performance that was both vulnerable and terrifyingly powerful in equal measure at London’s Heaven and now Mike Hadreas is set to bring that same magic to North America. He’s joining The xx for a handful of dates across the States later in the year, kicking off at the Santa Barbara Bowl in California on 27th September and rounding off at Champions Square in New Orleans on the 19th October.
