The xx have announced they'll be heading to New York next March for a residency at Park Avenue Armory's Wade Thompson Drill Hall.

They're set to play 25 shows between March 19-29, with each show (two per night, three on the weekend) hitting a 40 person capacity. Basically, if you have a spare $55 and like the band, this is a pretty sweet deal. It follows the same format as their shows at the Manchester International Festival from earlier in the year.

Defying perceptions of a traditional concert, the xx creates a site-specific environment to delve into uncharted levels of depth in their sound where dark and light collide as the memory of the outside world falls away. This uniquely voyeuristic and deeply personal setting is the perfect oasis for the band to perform, while in the process redefining their music and their relationship to the audience that surrounds them.
