MUSIC NEWS: The Xcerts Announce Stripped Back EP & One-Off London Headline Show
The Xcerts have announced that they’ll be releasing a new EP titled Late One Night on the 5th October via Raygun Records. The stripped back EP will feature new versions of five tracks from Hold On To Your Heart and will be available in limited edition signed/numberd 12″ vinyl.
“The idea to record quieter versions of songs from ‘Hold On To Your Heart’ came on our in-store run promoting the record,” explains Murray Macleod. “We really got a kick out of playing these stripped back versions and thought we should get them on tape. We recorded the entire EP in one night which lent a nice organic feel to it and hopefully makes for a nice contrast to the album. We have a tendency to over analyse so it was cool just to hangout and keep the session as loose as possible. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
To coincide with the release of the EP The Xcerts will play a special intimate show at London’s St Pancras Church on the 4th October, with tickets available HERE.
