Wake The Union reaches #73 in the Official Album Chart

October 22nd 2012

Bizarrely sandwiched between Jay-Z with Kanye West and the Best of INXS this is the first time a Show of Hands album has charted in the Top 75 of the Official Album Chart.
With alt-folk/acoustic acts like the Mumfords, Jake Bugg, Ed Sheeran, Ben Howard and Bellowhead (brilliant, guys) giving the X-Factored crowd a run for their money we’re in good company.

Thanks to all of you out there for buying the album and supporting us.
