The Wombats have scored their first UK Number One album.
The band’s fifth studio record ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’ hit the top of the charts in this weeks’ rundown yesterday (21st January), beating out Ed Sheeran and Adele into number two and three respectively.
Writing on Twitter, the band say: “It’s been an amazing journey since we started back in 2003 and this is such a career milestone for us.
“Thanks to everyone who helped us make this album, to everyone involved in getting it out into the world, to everyone behind the scenes, our amazing live touring crew, it really does take a lot of wonderful hard-working people to make and put an album out.”
“Final thanks to all our family, friends and fans for your support over the years, we could never have done this without you all. Number fucking 1. We did it! Indie Landfill Forever.”
It follows a run of top-five albums for the band, with 2011’s ‘This Modern Glitch’ (Number Three), 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ (Number Five) and 2018’s ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ (Number Three).
