Everything Everything have joined the list of bands reacting with dismay to the news that HMV has gone into administration.

As reported by NME, the high street retailer was placed into administration earlier this week (January 15). The potential closure casts huge potential problems for the music industry in an age where the public's ability to buy physical copies of albums on the high street is becoming more and more rare.

Musicians including Graham Coxon, Professor Green, Ellie Goulding and The Cribs were among those who posted messages online about the retailer's situation, and now Everything Everything have expressed similar sentiments in an interview with BBC Newsbeat.

Bassist Jeremy Pritchard said: "Most towns - small, medium-sized towns - aren't going to have any kind of record shop anymore. Fopps gone with it, most towns don't have an independent anymore, so that's it, isn't it? You can go to Tesco and buy the Top 10, but that is it. So there's not really a physical presence for the physical format on the high street."

Yesterday (January 18), it was reported that video games retailer Game had expressed an interest in buying HMV. Administrators Deloitte, who were called in to administrate the collapsed retailer on Tuesday (January 15) putting 4,000 jobs at risk, says it has received over 50 expressions of interest in HMV. These include a "broad range" of parties including wealthy individuals, private equity groups and Game – which is targeting as many as 50 shops.

Everything Everything, meanwhile, released their latest studio album 'Arc' earlier this week. On Wednesday (January 16), the band were on course for the highest new entry in this week's Official UK Album Chart with their new album 'Arc' at Number Three in the midweek update.
