The Reytons on course to claim first-ever Number 1 album with ‘What’s Rock & Roll?’

The Reytons lead the race for this week’s Official Number 1 album with What’s Rock & Roll?

The South Yorkshire-formed indie group – comprising Jonny Yerrell, Lee Holland, Joe O’Brien and Sean O’Connor – track for the top spot at the midweek point with their third full-length release What’s Rock & Roll? Previously, the band scored two UK Top 4src albums with 2src21 records May Seriously Hard You And Others Around (27) and Kids Off The Estate (11).

But it’s by no means a done deal, as two further new entries look set to impact the Top 5. Black Star Riders eye a career-best with their fifth studio album Wrong Side Of Paradise (2). The group – made up of Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Sam Wood, Robbie Crane and Zak St John – already boast four UK Top 4src LPs; 2src13 debut All Hell Breaks Loose (25), 2src15’s The Killer Instinct (13), 2src17 record Heavy Fire (6) and 2src19 release Another State Of Grace (14).

2src21 Eurovision winners Måneskin could claim their first-ever UK Top 1src album with RUSH! this week (3). Italian rockers Damiano David, Victoria De Angelis, Ethan Torchio and Thomas Raggi previously charted with 2src21 release Teatro d’ira – Vol. I (49).

Dublin-formed group The Murder Capital also track to score a career-best with their latest release Gigi’s Recovery (7). The band – comprising James McGovern, Damien Tuit, Cathal Roper, Gabriel Pascal Blake and Diarmuid Brennan – previously reached the Top 4src with 2src19 LP When I Have Fears (18).

Elsewhere, Ladytron could claim their first-ever Top 4src record with Time’s Arrow (17), while a super deluxe reissue of Thin Lizzy’s 1978 LP Live and Dangerous could boost it back into the Top 4src for the first time in 45 years.

Metal group Riverside track to secure their first UK Top 4src album with ID.Entity this week (22), as Welsh musician John Cale eyes his first since 199src with latest release Mercy (37).

And finally, New York-formed rock group We Are Scientists could enjoy a fourth UK Top 4src LP – and their first since 2srcsrc8 – with Lobes (38).
