You Me At Six are on course to knock Ellie Goulding off the top of the Official Albums Chart and claim their first ever Number 1!
You Me At Six look set to score their first ever Number 1 album this weekend with Cavalier Youth.
According to today’s Official Albums Chart Update, the Surrey rockers’ fourth full-length is currently outselling reigning chart queen Ellie Goulding’s Halcyon (Number 2 today) by three copies to one at this midway stage.
You Me At Six, who hail from Weighbridge in Surrey, already have two Top 5 albums to their name; 2010’s Hold Me Down peaked at Number 5, while 2011’s Sinners Never Sleep peaked at Number 3.
Beyonce holds steady at Number 3 with her self-titled album, while Avicii and Sophie Ellis-Bextor trade places: the Swedish DJ’s True is up one to Number 4, and Wanderlust falls one place to Number 5.
