The Teskey Brothers are making a run on albums charts on both sides of the globe with their second LP, Run Home Slow.
In Australia, the group are virtually assured of their first Top Ten. Run Home Slow is tracking for a top 3 berth ahead of the publication of the weekly ARIA Albums Chart this Saturday, with Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project likely to bag top spot.
The Melbourne band is also on target for their first appearance on the U.K. albums chart, with the new set opening at No. 26 on the midweek survey, where it’s released by Decca. Based on midweek U.K. data, Run Home Slow is ahead of new releases from U.S. rapper Lil Durk, prog-rock legends Yes and others.
The Teskey Brothers, ‘So Caught Up’
Run Home Slow is the the followup to the bros’ self-produced, ARIA Award-nominated 2017 debut Half Mile Harvest, which cracked the top 20 on the ARIA Chart and snagged No. 1 on the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) tally.
Hailing from the Yarra Valley, The Teskey Brothers are legit road warriors, having cut their teeth as buskers in Melbourne.
The four-piece toured relentlessly over the past last two years, including a run of recent headline shows across North America and slots on an array of festivals, from Latitude Festival (U.K.) to Firefly (U.S.), Bonnaroo (U.S.) and, more recently, Splendour in the Grass. And they’re not done yet.
