Scatterbrain (Xtra Mile Recordings)
Release Date: October 4, 2010
The Xcerts return with their second album and follow up to 2009's In The Cold Wind We Smile; Scatterbrain will be released on October 4th through Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner, Reuben, Far) preceeded by new single "Young (Belane)" a week earlier.
Scatterbrain is the first album by a UK act to be overseen by US producer Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Crime in Stereo) who began work on the record with the band at his home studio in Bethpage, New York earlier this year. Mastered by Emily Lazar (Anti-Flag, Vampire Weekend, David Bowie), the album shows an angrier side to the band's music which harks back to the early days of 90's grunge. It has a brilliantly sinister, dirty and earthy quality without turning its back on the pop-sensibilities and catchy melodies that the band captured so well with their debut.
Speaking of the record frontman Murray Macleod says"If we didn't sound different, I'd be worried". The first album was -- as for most new bands -- something of a "greatest hits" from the band's early years, when they were still finding their feet. This time, the album was almost entirely written in a six-week break between tours and as a result paints a much more vibrant picture; a single body of work that makes sense; a proper album that it would seem blasphemous to shuffle.http://www.myspace.com/thexcertshttp://www.facebook.com/Thexcertshttp://twitter.com/thexcertshttp://www.thexcertsband.com/http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/
