The Xcerts are a Scottish alternative rock band from Aberdeen, featuring frontman and guitarist Murray Macleod, bassist Jordan Smith and drummer Tom Heron.
Formed in 2001, the band released their debut album, ‘In the Cold Wind We Smile’, in 2009, which was followed by ‘Scatterbrain’, in 2010 and ‘There Is Only You’, in 2014.
The Xcerts returned later in 2018 with a brand new album 'Hold On To Your Heart', released in March. Before supporting You Me At Six on tour in November, the Xcerts will play an intimate headline show at St Pancras Old Church in October.
