The XX splinter

Let's hope it's not over before it's really begun: The XX have pulled a series of European dates because Baria Quereshi stepped down yesterday with exhaustion.

They played London without her, but they're not sure what the future holds:

Sim added that the band will be discussing their future this weekend after Quereshi's temporary break and nothing is set in stone. "Baria didn't perform last night after feeling exhausted from the XX's recent touring commitments. As a result, the band ... have postponed some European shows which they are hoping to reschedule," according to a statement.
