BIG IN JAPAN! The Ordinary Boys Tickets

The band topple Keane from the summit in the most unusual of places...

BIG IN JAPAN!
The Ordinary Boys' debut album has stormed to Number One - in JAPAN.


Following in the footsteps of Brit acts like Shampoo, the Britpack band's debut album 'Over The Counter Culture' has topped the country's international Chart - knocking Keane's 'Hopes And Fears' from the top.


The album also entered the Domestic Chart at Number Twelve - extremely rare for a British band.


Talking to NME.COM at Manchester's Move festival this weekend, singer Preston expressed his delight at the news.


He said: "We're going to Japan because the album Number One there, which is a real cliché, but it's quite a good cliché. We're really excited to get back over. They're really good over there, they really understand the lyrics. In fact sometimes maybe more than even the British press do, they research everything so well.


"Everyone always says we're so quintessentially British, but I guess it translates to any culture. It's a really promising sign that the music really is getting to people."
