News: Here At Last Hit Number 1 On iTunes Albums Chart With Debut EP

3 min read

The UK’s next biggest boyband, Here At Last, have hit number 1 on the iTunes Albums chart with their debut EP, EP1! As well as on iTunes, the EP is available in multiple formats, including all digital and streaming platforms, as well as in two different CD formats and each band member having their own special cassette version. Listen, stream and purchase HERE.

Here At Last, who have a whopping 3.1 million TikTok followers, released EP1 on Friday and entered the Official Albums Chart midweeks at #5 on Saturday. The release comes via the band’s own independent label, ‘HALO Army’, affectionately named after Here At Last’s fanbase as a thank you to their early fans, who have invested their hard earned money to support the group on their journey. Furthering the celebration of the EP, Here At Last have also released a special, limited edition collection of NFTs. The NFTs are only available to purchase for one week after the EP release, making them highly collectable and rare.

EP1 is made up of 8 tracks, including previous singles HappyAll InBloodshot and Lovesick as well as a new, previously unheard track Let Go, available on the digital edition of the EP. Co-written by the band, Let Go was the last track created for the EP, showcasing the band’s development and growth from the beginning of their career. The upbeat, catchy track illustrates the future of the band, who are already excitedly planning more singles for the rest of the year.

Over the weekend, the five-piece were excited to have their first ever billboard at Old Street Canvas, London, thanks to Amazon UK. The band went to see it on Saturday and were met with loads of fans, where they signed T-shirts, CDs and took photos with all of them. Continuing to build their fanbase, Here At Last also have two of the fastest growing Instagram and YouTube accounts in the country but they are showing no signs of slowing down!

Here At Last recently announced their 5-date, Happy You’re Here UK Tour in October where they will play London’s Indigo at the O2 on October 25th. Tickets are available HERE. They have had brilliant radio support from Radio 1 including being chosen by Mollie King as Best New Bop and were featured on Adele Roberts’ weekend breakfast show. They have performed twice on CBBC’s Saturday Mashup, been brought on at Sunday Brunch and have also been mentioned within a storyline on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks.

The absence of major label or TV talent shows has traditionally made it difficult for bands to breakthrough, but Here At Last are breaking the mould with their growing army of fans, affectionately known as HALOs.

Here At Last are Zach Loizou (from London), Tommy Lyon (from Exeter), Pedro Santos (from Portugal), James Thomas (from Leyland) and Ryan Burns (from North Wales).
