Aberdeen/Exeter 3 piece THE XCERTS have finally be released brand new material with their new single Shaking In The Water, taken from their much anticipated, 3rd studio album coming later this year. Released through Raygun Records and produced by both Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild) and long term band friend Paul Steel, the single is a remarkable returning statement for the band, and a perfect sign to what follows with the new album.

Singer and front man/guitarist Murray MacLeod explains a bit more about Shaking In The Water– “We’ve actually been playing this song live for quite a while now so we’re excited to finally release it. Originally this song had a real 60’s vibe to and it was really jangly. Over time it got progressively heavier, I then entered a world of fuzz and the song was truly born. Musically it’s very simple and very fun. Lyrically the song is about helplessness and I how I was solely to blame for finding myself in a regretful position with another person. In previous songs / records I have always found a scapegoat when singing about something I’m to blame for but I’ve grown up a bit and this time round I’m throwing my hands in the air and admitting my faults.”
The band can also announce an intimate set of UK headline dates for July around the single, leading up to their performance at this year’s Sheffield Tramlines Festival.
