Major corporation forces indie band to change name

Xerox doesn't like copying, it seems

Xerox Teens have been forced to change their name.

The band have renamed themselves XX Teens after US office equipment giant Xerox got in touch with the five-piece.

A statement issued by the band said: “Xerox Teens were contacted by the giant American company at the beginning of the year and had no option but to comply. The name change will take effect immediately.”

The five-piece, who recently performed at the Camden Crawl, are set to embark on their biggest headlining UK tour under their new name next month.

They will play:

Stoke Sugarmill (May 14)

Leicester Charlotte (15)

Birmingham Barfly (16)

Sheffield Fuzz (17)

Newcastle Digital (18)

Brighton Great Escape Festival (19)

Manchester Night & Day (21)

Edinburgh Cabaret Voltaire (24)

Swindon Brunel Rooms (25)

London Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club (26)
