On Monday night's Rab Brogan's Rewind & Unsigned there will be a live session from Aberdeen band The Xcerts.

The Xcerts were originally formed by 13-year-olds Murray Macleod and Jordan Smith after meeting in the headmasters room at their school in Aberdeen. When school friend Ross McTaggart joined on drums, The Xcerts went on to record two EPs at the local recording studio Captain Tom's.

In order to progress, the band moved to Brighton, Sussex in 2006, where Macleod went to college. Shortly afterwards, The Xcerts parted ways with their old drummer Ross McTaggart. A replacement was found in Tom Heron, originally from Exeter who was living in Brighton with a mutual friend, and had also become close friends with Murray and Jordan. With the newly formed trio created, the band began writing the songs that would start to spread the word of The Xcerts nationally.

The band released the songs "Feels Like Falling in Love", "Hold On To Your Heart" and "Daydream" in 2017 and "Drive Me Wild" in January 2018, all taken from their fourth studio album 'Hold On To Your Heart', which is due for release on 19th January 2018.  Visit The Xcerts online here.

Rab Brogan's Rewind & Unsigned, Monday 22 January 10.00pm-12midnight and Catch Up anytime.
