The Reytons land first Number 1 album with What’s Rock And Roll?

“We’ve been dreaming of this moment for as long as we can remember!”

The Reytons secure their first-ever Number 1 album with What’s Rock And Roll? today.

The South Yorkshire-formed indie group, comprising Jonny Yerrell, Lee Holland, Joe O’Brien and Jamie Todd claim the career-best with their third studio LP. Previously, the band enjoyed Top 40 success with 2021 releases May Seriously Harm You And Others Around (27) and Kids Off The Estate (11).

What’s Rock And Roll? also tops the Official Vinyl Albums Chart, having shifted the most copies on wax this week.

Speaking exclusively to, The Reytons say: “We’ve got no words for it. We’ve been dreaming of this moment for as long as we can remember.

“We’ve absolutely grafted all week. We’ve had it in us heads, we’ve been using the law of attraction, we’ve had the trophy on us phones for the last two or three years. It feels really surreal, it’s not sunk in yet!

“Thank you to everybody for believing in us, coming out and spending your money. It’s January and there’s a cost of living crisis. People have got better things to be spending their money on, but people believe in this. Thanks for backing us.”

Not bad actually. I'd rather hear their stuff than the IDLES's, Fontaines D.C.'s and Sports Team's that are getting hype in recent UK guitar music.




I'm gonna listen this album
