The Brighton based 3 piece had announced their long awaited return last week, with their brand new single ‘Feels Like Falling In Love’. The track received its debut on the Radio 1 Rock Show (July 2nd) as The Rockest Record (track of the week) and is out now through Raygun Records. In a week it has now been placed on the Spotify Viral Chart at number 3 of 50, and has now been played over 240,000 times in 7 days.
‘Feels Like Falling In Love’ is an instant classic, fusing the heady euphoria production and stadium pomp of 80’s Springsteen and Tom Petty with the dry, sharp wit of Cheap Trick. A euphoric, exuberant anthem about falling in love written by a romantic realist, soundtracked like the hugest of 80’s movie anthems ever,
The track was recorded at Rockfield and Clarksville, produced by Gary Clark and Dave Eringa, mixed by Chris Sheldon and mastered by John Davies. The video was directed by Chris “MUG5” Maguire. An @riotwashere Production
From THE XCERTS front-man Murray Macleod: “We are so psyched to hit the road throughout September and October. It’s been a while since our last headline tour and we’re going to give it everything we’ve got. New jams, singalongs, and all the love. We intend on making these show as joyous and life affirming as possible”
The single is their first new music since the much loved and critically lauded ‘There Is Only You’ album was released in 2014, and follows on from 3 years touring and playing shows with the likes of Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, Brand New, Deaf Havana, The Amazons, You Me At Six, Manchester Orchestra and more.
