Viola Beach‘s posthumous debut album looks set to enter the Official UK Album Chart at Number 1 on Friday.
The late group’s self-titled first album is currently 6,000 combined sales ahead of last week’s Number 1 from ELO, .
The talented four-man group from Warrington, who were widely tipped for success, recently received a moving tribute from Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin at their Glastonbury headlining slot.
Martin Talbot of the OCC said: “Following the terribly tragic events of February, everyone will have been rooting for the Viola Beach album this week, so it’s fantastic news that it is doing so well – I’m sure we will all be keeping our fingers crossed that it can hold on at Number 1”.
