CHART TOPPERS

South London rockers Bastille are celebrating their first number one after storming to the top of the charts with their debut album.

The four-piece went straight to the summit with their new release, 'Bad Blood', after going head-to-head with veteran Welsh rockers Stereophonics, said the Official Charts Company.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake held on to the top spot in the singles charts for a second week with 'Mirrors'.

The American singer beat Bruno Mars' single 'When I Was Your Man' into second spot, while Bastille's single 'Pompeii' fell one place to number three.

The sister festival to Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, Optimus Primavera Sound, in Porto, Portugal' has announced its line-up for 2013.

The event is taking place at The Porchester Halls on 14 March, tickets are on sale here.

OPEN YOUR EARS

Everything Everything have released a smashing post-apocalyptic video for their latest single 'Duet', out on 24 March.

Directed by and starring frontman Jonathan Higgs, the Mercury-nominated indie band from Manchester should be proud of the track described by Time Out as "Elbow raised to the power of Coldplay".

Talking about the video Higgs said: "This song is about being with someone you love at the end of the world, even if it's just the world that you both share. I wanted to do something visually related to the ash/concrete bodies found at the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii. They are amazingly powerful to look at and formed by a totally natural, destructive force. The bodies of the people are huddled together while there is death literally raining down. That's what I wanted it to feel like."
