English indie-pop outfit The xx are preparing for an extensive worldwide tour as they continue supporting last fall's "Coexist."

The London-based electronic duo kicked off the lengthy outing with a European leg that began last night (5/2) in Barcelona, Spain, and continues through the middle of the month. The North American portion immediately follows, first with a May 22 show in Edmonton, Alberta. That leg includes 19 major market stops, many alongside Grizzly Bear.

The entire tour, which also hits Asia and returns to Europe and the U.S. for a few shows, is shown below.

The xx unveiled their sophomore set, "Coexist," in September via Young Turks Records. The effort, which follows their 2009 eponymous debut, peaked at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Alternative Albums and Independent Albums charts.

The outfit's latest single, "Together," was penned for the forthcoming Baz Luhrmann-directed remake of "The Great Gatsby" and is currently streaming at their a href="http://www.thexx.info/news/" target="new">website.
