Cassettes- not actually a dead format!

The 2018 cassette charts are in, and it turns out that we bloody love a good old fashioned cassette tape. 

Formerly binned off as a dead format, cassette tapes had a massive revival in 2018 with the UK Official Charts revealing that sales of the format were up 125.3% year on year for 2018- making sales of tapes the highest that they've been in over 10 years. 

Partially responsible for the resurgence of the format is Twenty One Pilots' 'Trench'- which placed at number 12 in the year-end chart, but peaked at number two earlier in the year. 

Also making an appearance on the 2018 year-end cassette chart is Deaf Havana's 'Rituals' coming in at number 34, Don Broco's 'Technology' which placed at number 37 and You Me At Six' 'VI' at 31.
