The Xcerts - 'Live At King Tut's' Album

“Ludicrously Punchy” – Steve Lamacq
'...classic piece of air-punching melancholia' - Observer

Release mini album ‘Live At King Tut’s’ exclusively through iTunes.
Perform at the Relentless Garage on the Week of Opening!

Having recently returned from tours with UK heavyweights My Vitriol and Feeder, THE XCERTS are now set to release a live album ‘Live At King Tut’s’ as their headline tour continues to roll through the UK. ‘Live At King Tut’s’ captures a very special sold out show from the launch of their ‘Crisis In The Slow Lane’ single released on Xtra Mile / King Tut’s Recordings. The set was mixed by Dave Eringa (Idlewild, Manic Street Preachers) who produced the band’s debut album, and will be available exclusively through iTunes on 27th July. The energetically charged eight song set includes previously unreleased track, ‘Beige’.

Singer Murray Macleod said of the show “It’s every kids dream to play King Tut’s and to sell it out was a big milestone for us. When our soundman Nelly suggested recording it we were nervous but it came out so well that we wanted our fans to hear it too. It’s a bit rough and ready but it represents the breaking point of 2 years hard touring and we couldn’t be more proud.”

Here’s what the press had to say:
“Charged with youthful hope and exuberance, every riff and anthemic chorus points to a bright future for these talented lads." - Kerrang! 4/5
“...this debut is inch-perfect, merging heartstring-tugging delicacy with buoyant distortion... If you're searching for pop with balls but no bullshit, look no further.” - Rock Sound 8/10
"'In The Cold Wind We Smile' is a triumphant, life-affirming classic" - Big Cheese 5/5
