Xiu Xiu reimagine The Air Force, tour with Swans (2012)

Six years after it’s original release, and long out-of-print, Xiu Xiu’s groundbreaking The Air Force makes its return this fall. Xiu Xiu frontman, Jamie Stewart, and his brother, long-time Xiu Xiu designer, Joe Stewart, have since completely re-imagined the album packaging, remastered the tracks and pressed the record on 180 gram black vinyl. This just in time for a tour supporting Swans!  Dates are below:
