Courteeners face stiff competition in the UK Albums Chart this week, though, with Eminem’s surprise-released ‘Music To Be Murdered By’ a strong contender for number one.
The Official Charts Company have announced today (January 20) that Courteeners are currently leading the way, with the band a mere 2,000 sales ahead of second-placed Eminem.
Courteeners will continue their promotion of ‘More. Again. Forever.’ with a series of shows over the coming weeks. You can see details of those gigs below.
30 – Club Pryzm, Kingston Upon Thames
13 – O2 Academy, Liverpool
15 – Albert Hall, Manchester
16 – Albert Hall, Manchester
Eminem, meanwhile, drew condemnation for a controversial lyric on his new album which referenced the 2017 terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
The Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham was among those to publicly criticise the rapper, calling the lyric “unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected” by the Manchester Arena bombing.
