Distorted-pop three piece THE XCERTS’ release their fantastic new album ‘LEARNING HOW TO LIVE AND LET GO’, alongside the video for new single ‘LOVESICK’, out now via UNFD. Order the album on CD and vinyl here and watch the video for ‘Lovesick’ here.

‘LEARNING HOW TO LIVE AND LET GO’ heralds an exciting new chapter for a band consistently regarded as one of the most exciting bands the UK has to offer. ‘Learning…’ shows the band at their slickest, their most-pop and at the same time their most raw and honest. Diving into subject matter that lays bare love & heartbreak, joy & sadness and pulls no punches; the band wholly admit to having worked on the album “without limitations” and reaches for exciting new musical influences, putting the band in a lane they were yet to occupy on previous outputs.

Reflecting on the record, frontman Murray shares: “At times over the past couple of years, I didn’t think this record would ever be heard, so the fact we are here is a beautiful thing. We rid ourselves of fear and pride and let our true experiences take centre stage. It was up to the 3 of us to create a fully realised vision and commit ourselves wholeheartedly without second guessing ourselves and to make a record only The XCERTS could make. At times it’s raw, vulnerable, emotional, tender, humorous, claustrophobic, narcissistic, noisy, quiet, calm, chaotic, slick and loving, but it’s a record rooted in healing and finding inner peace which I found during the course of making the album after a pretty tumultuous period in my life where everything was too loud, so I turned it all up. We wanted to make a record where the beauty transcends the chaos and I think we did it with a career best.”
