You know what totally rules? The xx announcing that they have new shows coming up. It hasn't been that long since the band has played live (a show at New York’s Guggenheim Museum in 2014 was their last), but the xx's last album was released in 2012, so it seems like it's been a minute.

Jamie xx has been on his own, releasing a solo album In Colour (which featured his xx bandmate Romy Madley Croft) in 2015, but they've also been working on the follow-up to 2012's Coexist.

And on Wednesday, we learned that the xx will be playing three Lollapoloozas in Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Neat! The lineups for those festivals also include MetallicaThe StrokesThe Weeknd, Flume, The 1975Tegan and SaraDuran Duran, MØ and Tove Lo. Check out more info here.

See? Told you that ruled.
