The band - made up of Rou Reynolds, Chris Batten, Rob Rolfe, and Rory Clewlow - released The Spark last Friday.

To coincide with its release, they arranged a series of album signings around the country, including in their home city.

Empire Records’ manager Dave Burgess said: “A St Albans band were putting out a new album, so it made sense for us to do something.

“They did signings with the larger stores like HMV, so we were the smallest.”

Mr Burgess said around 50 people attended the signing, and one woman from Germany came to get a signature.

To get an invite, fans had to pre-order the CD or the vinyl with Empire Records, which is located in Heritage Close.

The album is expected to chart in the top 10 on Friday, behind The Killers and the Foo Fighters.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
