LeeOndon/Dublin (DPA) – Irish rock band Inhaler, centered around singer Elijah Hewson, son of U2 frontman Bono, topped the British charts with their debut album “It Won’t Always Be Like This”.
This makes you the first Irish artist to be ranked first in the UK in 13 years. The last time The Script Band managed to do this was in 2008. The official chart company announced that the quartet also topped their home country.
“We can’t believe our album climbed to number one,” the band said. “From our beginnings in small clubs in the UK to where we are today, we never thought during the making of this album that this would be possible for the lucky four of us.”
Singer “Allie” Hewson (21) told British news agency PA that one reason for its success is that the inhaler has garnered a fan base that has never heard of U2. But he acknowledged that his origins have opened many doors for him. Nevertheless, the band always had to prove itself.
«I don’t blame people who are interested in this. I’d be interested if I heard someone was in the same situation as me.” The band has now come up with it. “It’s who it is. I don’t think there is too much distraction. If people want to talk about it, let them talk about it.”
Ed Sheeran continues to top the UK Singles Chart with his new song “Bad Habits”.
