The Xcerts announce new single, ‘Shaking in the Water’

The trio return with a recorded version of the long-time live staple.

The Xcerts have announced details of a new single.

The trio, who also have a series of live dates planned for the summer including a set at Sheffield’s Tramlines festival, will release ‘Shaking in the Water’ on 21st July.

It’s the first teaser of a still-to-be-confirmed third album, and is described by frontman Murray Macleod like this:

“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 it 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 how I was solely to blame for finding myself in a regretful postition 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.”

While the full track itself has not yet been revealed - a “teaser” is below.

The Xcerts have the following live dates coming up.

15 Southampton Joiners
16 Guildford Boileroom
18 Tunbridge Wells Forum
19 Summersound Festival
21 London The Black Heart
22 York The Duchess
23 Glasgow Nice ‘N Sleazy
24 Aberdeen Tunnels
25 Tramlines Festival
