Blackpool band top German chart

Auger beat Slipknot, Rammstein and Editors to claim the most sold in the alternative chart.

The band consists of 23 year old Kieran Thornton and 22 year old Kyle Wilson Auger, formed of 23 year old Kieran Thornton and 22 year old Kyle Wilson beat the likes of well known bands Slipknot, Rammstein and Editors with their track 'Find My Own Way Out.'

The band formed two years ago after both members found they had a taste for the same style of music.

22 year old Kyle, who works at Blackpool Sixth From said:

"It was quite late when I remembered to check on the Monday when it gets updated to see that we've made the number one spot denying the likes of Rammstein who were there previously."

"I though that we might drop out of the charts but to go straight tot he number one spot was unbelievable.

"There's a really good scene for our music there we know the goth and alternative scene quite well, In Germany they're so enthusiastic for this sort of music there's a huge and eclectic taste and luckily our music is that, it's such a blend of all different genres and they're really open to it."
