A FOUR-piece gunning for Leigh's first Number One album has launched a pop-up shop in their hometown.

On the release of their new album 'Anxiety Replacement Theory' on Friday, April 28, the Lottery Winners have opened a temporary store in the Spinning Gate shopping centre as they shoot for a Number One album.

The pop-up shop, which will remain in Leigh until Thursday, May 4, will be stocked full of the band's latest album, previous releases, and other memorabilia.

There will also be a special 'instore party' on Monday, May 1, which will include prize giveaways and live performances from The Lottery Winners as well as other acts such as Cobain Jones, Jamie Wooding, Megan Wyn, and Zha Olu.

Pulling out all the stops with 'Anxiety Replacement Therapy', the new album includes collaborations with industry stars such as Boy George, Shaun Ryder, and Frank Turner.

The local band also played at Leigh Sports Village before the derby game against Wigan last month, while lead singer Thom Rylance posted a poem he wrote for 'Little Old Leigh' in the lead-up to the album's release.

Currently touring around the UK in a huge tour bus, the four-piece will play two special shows at St George Parish Church in Tyldesley on Sunday, April 30.

After this, they have Glastonbury performances, festival slots, and the "biggest headline gig of their lives" to look forward to.

In a statement, the band said: "We’ve put everything we have into this record, and we’re endlessly proud of it.

"Go grab a copy, stream it, spread it, shake it, move it, make it and let’s get it to number 1 this time next week!"
