The xx have announced a trio of intimate UK shows for September.

The London band will take to the stage at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on September 10 - the same day they release second album 'Coexist'. They will follow this hometown show with gigs at The Coal Exchange in Cardiff on September 11 and Edinburgh's Usher Hall on September 12. The xx are also scheduled to perform at Bestival on the Isle of Wight on September 7.

The xx previewed material from 'Coexist', their follow-up to 2009's Mercury Prize-winning 'xx', at a trio of London shows in May. Earlier this month (July), they unveiled the album's lead single 'Angels' - scroll down to listen to it.

Earlier today (July 23), the band revealed that they have "gained confidence" since the release of their debut album, xx. "It's nice not feeling cripplingly shy," Romy Madley Croft confided in an interview with The Vine.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (July 27). To check the availability of The xx tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
