NEWS: THE XCERTS ANNOUNCE 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF ‘IN THE COLD WIND WE SMILE’

THE XCERTS have announced plans to release a 10th-anniversary edition of their debut album, IN THE COLD WIND WE SMILE.

The reissue has been remastered on 180mg white vinyl and includes a download card of 13 exclusive bonus tracks and fold-out poster. It’s also going to be out on CD with bonus tracks on a second CD.

Singer and guitarist MURRAY MACLEOD explains: “To think it’s been 10 years since the release of our debut record is pretty wild. It’s been a hell of a journey and the fact we are still an active band who are able to reissue a record for an anniversary is really cool.

“We’re currently in the studio working on our new album but we’ve been knee-deep in nostalgia putting together the reissue and we’re really looking forward to playing the album in its entirety throughout November / December.

“We haven’t played some of these songs since the release of the record so it’s going to be a trip but we’re stoked to hit the road and turn up the amplifiers in celebration.”
