The XCERTS recently announced a UK Tour and a new EP – Wildheart Dreaming – released on 29th March on Raygun Records. The 4 track EP wraps up the campaign for their breakthrough album Hold On To Your Heart, which was praised by The Independent as, “a record of defiance, a celebration of life including all its pitfalls and a resolute middle finger to depressing thoughts and negative feelings.”
The new EP includes 4 brand new tracks that were written during the Hold On To Your Heart sessions that were held back for this EP. The first single from the EP, You Mean Everything, was released on the 25th of January. Written as an ode to Murray’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.”
The band kick off the UK tour in Dundee on 29th March and will headline London’s Garage on April 9th. Following the tour the band will retire to the studio to commence recording of their 5th Album. They will perform at The Key Club in Leeds on March 31st.
