Jamie Stewart will be going on a solo Xiu Xiu tour this spring, including U.S. shows in the South ahead of European dates. Upon his return, Xiu Xiu will play a special show at NYC's Guggenheim Museum on May 8 titled "Deforms the Unborn" as part of Danh Vo's "Take My Breath Away" exhibition there. Here's the gist:

On the occasion of Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, experimental band Xiu Xiu premieres an extended-length track about the agonizing experience of demonic possession, based on firsthand accounts of exorcisms in modern history. This new composition was inspired by Danh Vo’s body of work titled after obscenities uttered in William Friedkin’s classic horror film, The Exorcist (1973). During the concert the museum will remain open, granting visitors a special opportunity to view the exhibition in its final days.

There are 7 PM and 9:30 performances of "Deforms the Unborn" and tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed, along with a stream of Xiu Xiu's 2017 album FORGET, below.
