The Xcerts join the bill of the huge Teenage Cancer Trust show at The Royal Albert Hall in support of Biffy Clyro

Having only just been swept off to Europe with cult stoner rockers Fu Manchu; THE XCERTS have now been added to the bill of a huge show at The Royal Albert Hall in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust. The band will perform on the third night (Wednesday 23 March) of the week long event alongside Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison (solo) and UK rock giants Biffy Clyro to form a trio of Scotland’s finest acts.

This year sees the 10th anniversary of the series of concerts which were the brainchild of Teenage Cancer Trust Patron and The Who frontman Roger Daltrey CBE. The shows have featured some of the world's biggest bands and artists and 2011’s line-up is not exception! Speaking of the show frontman Murray Macleod says “"I'm delighted to be able to play a show for the Teenage Cancer Trust. As a Crohn's disease sufferer I spent much of my teens in and out of hospital so I can only begin to imagine the heartache and suffering felt by families affected by a life threatening illness. It's an honour to be able to support such an amazing charity."

The Xcerts have just completed a highly successful jaunt in the UK where they were joined by Dinosaur Pile Up and Japanese Voyeurs as part of The Rock Sound Exposure Tour. Their brand new EP ‘Stairs To Noise: The Scatterbrain EP' was released last week on limited edition CD and download through Xtra Mile Recordings (Far, Frank Turner, Straight Lines...).
