The Xcerts announce new EP and UK tour

The Xcerts

The XCERTS has announced a brand new EP ‘Wildheart Dreaming’, due out this Spring.

The four-track EP will precede by the first single ‘You Mean Everything’ set for release Friday 25th January.

The band also announced a nine-date headline tour through late March and April. Following the tour, the band will retire to the studio to commence recording of their 5th album.

The band said: “The tour will be the last headline run in support of the Hold On To Your Heart era. We’ll be celebrating the release of the EP and the best album campaign our band has ever experienced. We’re then going to put the beast to bed and head into the studio to record a new album. I actually want to record 2 new records… Maybe. Anyway, grab your tickets and let’s go out in damn fine style.”

The new EP includes four brand new tracks that were written during the “Hold On To Your Heart” sessions but where held back for this EP. Written as an ode to Murray’s family and friends, ‘You Mean Everything’ took on a new meaning once complete.

He said: “It turned into a song for all the people I’ve never met. For the ones who feel alone, without self-worth, this song is for you. It’s a song about compassion which is the theme that runs through the EP and we are so psyched that these songs are finding their way into the world.”

Wildheart Dreaming is released Friday 29th March through Raygun Records. Find the tracklist and tour dates below.
