The 4 track EP, Wildheart Dreaming, is due for released on 29 March through Raygun Records. The first track You Mean Everything will be debuted on 21 January 2019.
The Xcerts, whom released their fourth studio album Hold On To Your Heart at the start of 2018 , talked about the tracks on new EP tracks explaining that were written during the Hold On To Your Heart sessions but held back for this EP. The first single from the EP You Mean Everything will be released on the 25th of January. Written as an ode to lead singer Murray Macleod ‘s family and friends, the song took on a new meaning once complete.
“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.
It hasn’t been long since The Xcerts revealed dates for their late March and April headline tour and now a new EP: 2019 is looking bright for fans of the Aberdonian band. The group kick off their UK tour in Dundee on 29 March 2019 which includes headlining London’s Garage on 9 April 2019.
Following the tour, The Xcerts plan to retire to the studio to commence recording of their fifth album, as they explained; “The tour will be the last headline run in support of the Hold On To You 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.”
