Let's get Oceans back into the Official Charts!
It will soon be six months since we released our sophomore album, Oceans. Back in February 2022, the album entered four Official UK Charts, including #13 in Rock and Metal Albums, #7 in Independent Albums Breakers, #30 in Album Downloads, and #38 in Independent Albums.
Once again, we're going to go up against the major labels for the UK chart positions and we think we actually stand a good chance.
Since our album came out, our fanbase grew larger and stronger. Maybe we can get to #1?
Below are some ways you can help us secure our chart positions!
How you can help
The charting week we are aiming for is between Friday 29 July (00:00) until Thursday 4 August (23:59), so make sure you purchase and download your copies during this timeframe.
Chart positions of that week will be announced on Friday 5 August.
1. Purchase a digital copy of our album
Digital copies also count towards the official charts, but make sure you download the album after you purchase it, or else it won't count!
We will make the digital album available for £3.75 on our website and on Bandcamp for the charting week! You can also purchase physical merch bundles too to help!
2. Purchase CD from official online retailers or in-store
Purchasing the CD from a retail store counts as an additional sale in the charts. You can visit your local hmv to purchase our album, or purchase from the following online retail stores here:
- Nuclear Blast
- Plastic Head
- Esprit D'Air (Official Website) (first 50 sales at £3.99 this week)
3. Purchase CDs from our tour
We'll be going on tour this summer and all record sales will be reported to the Official Charts Company. Here are our tour dates:
- 30 July 2022: The Underworld, London
- 31 July 2022: The Cluny 2, Newcastle upon Tyne
- 1 August 2022: The Garage (G2), Glasgow
- 2 August 2022: Rebellion, Manchester
You can get tickets for the shows here.
4. Purchase ANY merch item from the Oceans Collection
Our Oceans Collection merchandise items are bundled with the digital download of Oceans. Purchase any item from the collection to contribute a sale to the charts. Please make sure you download your purchase too, so it correctly reports to the charts!
5. Stream the album
Streaming the album also helps. However it is the least effective way as 1,000 streams is the equivalent of one album purchase (which means listening to the album a total of 50 times).
According to the Official Charts Company, the services contributing to the charts span Spotify, Deezer, Napster, O2 Tracks (Musicqubed), rara, Rdio, Blinkbox Music and XBox Music. Video streams currently do not count towards the Official Charts.
