Congratulations to local band The Lottery Winners, who are officially NUMBER ONE IN THE UK ALBUM CHARTS!
The Lottery Winners, whose singer/bassist Katie Lloyd and drummer Joe Singleton both hail from Lowton, whave hit the top spot tonight (Friday, 5 May) with their latest album, Anxiety Replacement Therapy.
The band have beaten off some seriously stiff competition from the likes of the National, Jessie Ware and Nines to achieve the UK’s biggest selling album of the week. What an amazing achievement!
About The Lottery Winners
The Lottery Winners have been together for almost 15 years, and have built up a large and loyal fanbase. So much so, that they certainly seem one of the hottest acts around right now, with many industry experts tipping them for the top.
They’ve also made lots of showbiz connections in recent years. Anxiety Replacement Therapy sees them team up with the likes of Boy George, Shaun Ryder and Frank Turner.
As well as Katie and Joe being from Lowton, the other members of the band are all local too – Thom Rylance (vocals/guitar) and Rob Lally (guitar/vocals) are from Astley and Tyldesley.
The band have enjoyed modest success before – back in March 2020, their self-titled debut album reached an impressive number 10 in the official UK charts and number 2 in the iTunes Charts, all during the first week of lockdown.
And the group are certainly proud of their local roots – and even as they look ahead to playing several summer festivals this year, including Glastonbury, they still found the time to launch a pop-up shop in Leigh’s Spinning Gate Shopping Centre over the past week. The shop sold their album and other merchandise, and even hosted a party for fans. The group also played at Leigh Sports Village before the Leigh v Wigan game in March.
If you’re not yet familiar with The Lottery Winners, you can buy a copy of their album from their website now – or just stream them on your favourite music service.
