Should Vampire Weekend hold on to their lead come Friday, the group will claim their first ever #1 in Blighty. They previously peaked at #3 in 2010 and 2013 with Contra and Modern Vampires of the City, respectively.

Last week’s #1, P!nk’s  Hurts 2B Human (RCA), is ahead on streams at #2, while Vampire Weekend leads on paid-for sales.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are new at #3 with End of Suffering (AWAL), while Newcastle band The Wildhearts’ first album in 10 years, Renaissance Men (Graphite), start at #5.

Today Is A Good Day (Cooking Vinyl) from singer/songwriter Lucy Spraggan is also Top 10 bound at #8.
