The band top the UK Record Store Chart with their second studio album, leading an entirely new Top 5 which also features Creeper, The Psychedelic Furs, Dashboard Confessional and Max Richter.

The Official Charts Company launched the UK Record Store Chart in 2012 to reflect the last decade’s drive to support independent music outlets and the concurrent surge in vinyl sales. It is compiled from the best selling albums at 100 of Britain’s leading independent music shops.
