The Xcerts - Announce headline tour and CMJ (New York) appearance

The Xcerts - Scatterbrain

Late last month THE XCERTS premiered the video to their new single ‘Young (Belane)’ featuring Jamie Campbell Bower (of Twilight, Harry Potter…) exclusively through the band’s official website ( and YouTube. The video proved an instant success crashing YouTube’s hit counter with fans logging on in their thousands. Although many hits were lost due to the shear volume of simultaneous views ‘Young (Belane)’ still managed to become the 13th ‘Most Viewed’, 10th ‘Top Favorited’ and 10th ‘Top Rated’ video on the video streaming website which led to repercussions in other territories across the World (also being featured in the ‘Most Views’ category in South Africa and New Zealand).
