The Xcerts Return triumphant from CMJ and announce headline tour
THE XCERTS have just returned from New York where they played two special CMJ industry showcases at packed out venues. No only did the band get to perform in the city where their new album 'Scatterbrain' was recorded, but were personally invited to see a secret performance by Bad Books in a secluded loft space in Brooklyn and got to hangout with Justin Beck of Glassjaw who continue to be a huge inspiration for the band.
The Xcerts new album has been extremely well received by the UK press with Big Cheese (5/5) calling it the "...comeback of the year", Kerrang! (4/5) saying the band have "become contenders on brilliant second album" while Rocksound (8/10) thought the record displayed "...songwriting chops that are matures beyond their relatively young years".
Before 2010 is out, The Xcerts will find time to hit the road with Anberlin before heading out on their own headline tour of the UK bringing the sound of 'Scatterbrain' to a venue near you. Dates are as follows:
