THE OFFICIAL VINYL CHARTS ARE HERE!
Being the die hard vinyl fans that we are, the Diabolical team were excited to hear about the launch of the UK’s first, weekly, Official Vinyl Charts, to be published exclusively on OfficialCharts.com. It’s safe to say that the music scene is seeing a massive resurgence in vinyl sales – old school vinyl is cool again. Teens, who once turned their noses up at their parents’ record collections, now wait in line to get the latest releases. It’s clear that music fans and collectors alike can’t get enough.
According to the Official Album Charts, its looking like vinyl junkies are likely to snap up 2 million units by the end of this year – a huge number compared to sales figures from six years ago, which were a measly one-tenth of this.
With Britain’s resurrected love for vinyl showing little sign of slowing down – we say long live the record! The Diabolical team, will no doubt be religiously checking in on the charts every week, and our bets are on Hot Chip’s new album ‘Why Make Sense?’ to take the number one spot in May. We hope that you’ll be checking in too.
