The Birmingham-based band released the album on Monday (August 5) and it is placed at Number Six on the Official Chart Company midweek update today (August 7). Elsewhere in the Top 10, The Civil Wars are likely to gain the highest new entry with their self-titled album in at Number Two so far this week. Last week's Number One, 'The Impossible Dream' by Richard & Adam, is a non-mover and is likely to stay at the top for a second week.

There are two other high new entries on today's Official Albums Chart update. Asking Alexandria are on course for their highest charting UK album to date with their third studio album, 'From Death To Destiny' new at 15. Meanwhile, Example’s Best Of collection, '#Hits', is new in today at Number 16. The compilation album includes the singles 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' and 'Stay Awake'.

Elsewere, Miley Cyrus is set to topple Avicii's three week reign at the top of the UK's Official Singles Chart this week with her single 'Can't Stop' ahead of the EDM giant's club banger 'Wake Me Up' by nearly two copies to one according to Official Chart data. New entries in the Singles Chart this week are expected from Tinie Tempah with 'Trampoline' (3), Justin Timberlake (32) and Le Youth (37).
