Bob Vylan have unveiled a new graffiti mural as they bid for their first Number One album this week.

The band are locked in a chart battle for this week’s Number One with their new album, ‘‘Bob Vylan Presents: The Price Of Life’.

The follow-up to 2020’s ‘We Live Here’, the album is battling for the top spot alongside ones from the likes of Fontaines D.C., Queen’s Brian May, Spiritualized and Pusha T.

Explaining that they didn’t want to spend thousands on a billboard for their album campaign, the band said that they instead decided to create a graffiti mural to help give their album one last push towards the Number One spot this week.

Writing on Twitter, they said: “Didn’t wanna spend ££££ on a billboard so our brother @KillaKela helped us celebrate the release of our album in a Vylan way. We’re in a battle for a top 10 album at the moment against major label artists. Our album is £6.99 on iTunes, please support if you can.”

The mural, which is located in Tottenham at Vip Graffiti, London N17, was created with the help of Killa Kela. You can see images of the mural below.

The last single release from their album was ‘Wicked & Bad’, which followed previously released singles ‘Pretty Songs’, ‘GDP’ and ‘Health is Wealth’.

Speaking to NME last month about the album, drummer Bobbie Vylan said: “It might be big-headed to say, but there’s maybe more variation than any band’s album – maybe ever!” said drummer Bobbie Vylan.

He continued: “It’s a conceptual piece, but it’s very varied in its sonics, it’s varied in its production, the lyrical content, the themes that we’re exploring as well. I think it’s going to be an incredible album to conceptualise what the UK is going through and will be going through in the next year to God knows how long… until this government pulls their finger out of their fucking arsehole.”

The band will be heading out on a full UK headline tour in May and June.
