After being teased with an acoustic version of their single ‘Daydream’ earlier this year, Scottish rockers, The Xcerts, will thankfully release a full acoustic EP on October 5th under Raygun Records. The EP, titled ‘Late One Night’ (owing to it actually being entirely recorded late over one night), will be released as a limited edition signed and numbered 12” vinyl, featuring new versions of 5 tracks from their most recent album ‘Hold On To Your Heart,’ and an etched ‘Hold On To Your Heart’ rose design on the flip side.

Speaking about the EP, vocalist, Murray Macleod, said, “the idea to record quieter versions of songs from ‘Hold On To Your Heart’ came on our in-store run promoting the record. We really got a kick out of playing these stripped back versions and thought we should get them on tape. We recorded the entire EP in one night which lent a nice organic feel to it and hopefully makes for a nice contrast to the album. We have a tendency to over analyse so it was cool just to hangout and keep the session as loose as possible. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
It is a surprise they could actually find one night to work on the record, given their extensive touring schedule this year. Fresh from supporting the Goo Goo Dolls throughout July, they are set to play an intimate gig at St Pancras Old Church, London on October 3rd before embarking on yet another tour with You Me At Six in December. Upcoming tour dates are listed below.
