They’ve done it – Enter Shikari have achieved their first ever No.1 on the UK Official Album Chart with latest release ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’.
After a closely-fought race through the week, Official Charts reports that the band managed to pull ahead by around 800 copies to take the top spot.
This is Shikari’s fifth top 10 album with previous effort, ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’, reaching No.2 in 2020.
In a statement, the band said “We’ve just found out that our album, A Kiss for the Whole World, is Number 1 in the Official UK Album Charts. That’s mad. Thank you to everyone who streamed it, bought it and rallied round us; we appreciate you so much!
“We’re on an independent label, playing music with a very progressive message, so it’s mad that we’re up here in this position. Thank you so much. Big up, big love!”
