and live on Freeview channel 276
The local group’s third record ‘Here We Are’ is currently placed at number 33 on the UK’s official mid-week album chart based on sales of CDs, downloads, vinyl, audio and video streams and other formats.
The group have urged fans to get their copies bought this week to help them chart as high as possible.
In a statement on their social media page, the group wrote: “And this is it. This is when the giants will come for us with their official playlists streaming numbers and big budget advertising campaigns. They don’t want a DIY band from Leeds that run out of a shed to get in the way. It spoils the plan for them.
“And we don’t care! So please now - we need every single one of you to get behind us. Order another copy, order it for a friend. DOWNLOAD the full album on iTunes etc.
“They don’t want us at their party but we’re here and together we can stay.
“It’s GAME ON! HERE WE ARE is at 33!”
In an interview with the YEP, frontman Jamie Williamson said the group were “really proud” of the new collection of tracks, adding: “It’s definitely a step up from our previous work. The songs are definitely ones we’ve been heading towards our whole career.”
The UK album chart is currently topped by The Rolling Stones, who are on course to score their 14th number one album with ‘Hackney Diamonds’.
