The fourth studio album for local rock/pop act 5 Seconds of Summer called “C A L M” becomes their fourth consecutive No.1 album in Australia this week.

“C A L M” (the four guys name in Calum, Ashton, Luke and Michael) is the 874th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2020), the 724th for ARIA (1983 to 2020), the 513th to debut at No.1, the twelfth No.1 for 2020 and the 24th for the Capitol Record label, their last being the bands third set “Youngblood” (25th of June, 2018) for one week.

All of the bands albums have now gone to No.1 in their self-titled set (7th of July, 2014), the follow-up “Sounds Good, Feels Good” (2nd of Nov, 2015) and then “Youngblood” (25th of June, 2018), all albums only spending a single week at the top. While also in this past week in history the band were at No.1 with their breakout single “She Looks So Perfect” (31st of March, 2014) in Australia, New Zealand, England and Ireland (also all for a single week), while this new album has also entered at No.1 in England this week (their second No.1 there), while it could also become their fourth No.1 in the U.S.A. with next weeks chart.

This week in history also saw Silverchair land their fifth No.1 album (from five issued) so 5SOS equals their four from four No.1 albums, which occurred mostly in this week; on the 9th of April, 1995 (LP#1 Frogstomp), 8th of April, 2002 (LP#4, Diorama) and 9th of April, 2007 (LP#5, Young Modern). 5SOS also climbs from equal 157th to now equal 136th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1′ to sit alongside Bring Me the Horizon, Lana Del Rey and The Amity Affliction who’ve all had four No.1’s and four weeks accumulated at the top. 5SOS are also now one of nineteen acts to have racked up four No.1 albums in Australia.

It’s the first time that the word “Calm” has appeared a No.1 album title, the previous highest was the James Bay debut set “Chaos and the Calm” which made it to No.3 in April of 2015. The new No.1 is also the third by an Australian act to hit the top this year after Dune Ras (Feb 10th) and Tame Impala (Feb 24th), and overall this is the 239th Australian performed No.1 album (solo, duo, group, male or female), plus also the 386th No.1 set by a group (local or overseas).

The new No.1 album in New Zealand this week lands at No.2 here, the second album for Dua Lipa called “Future Nostalgia”, which becomes her second Top 10 and now highest charted album, as her self-titled debut set made it to No.8 in April of 2018 spending two broken weeks within the Top 10, that album is still charting after 123 weeks within the Top 100 and is up five to No.28 this week.

Pearl Jam return to the charts at No.3 with their eleventh studio album called “Gigaton”, their first new album in almost seven years, having last graced the charts with “Lightning Bolt” (HP-1 on October 2013), and by entering at No.3 it becomes their twelfth Top 10 album in Australia (10 studios, one Best of, one live album). Last weeks No.1 album for The Weeknd and “After Hours” drops down three spots to No.4, while the album landed at the top in both The U.S.A. and his home country of Canada this past week too.

The fourth of five Top 10 entries this week is the debut album for local Sunshine Coast, QLD surf-punk group The Chats, called “High Risk Behaviour”, which is also the No.1 selling vinyl album of the week, and overall nationally it debuts at No.5. Falling down four places each are the compilation “Artists Unite for Fire Fight” (2 to No.6), “Fine Line” for Harry Styles (3 to No.7) and “Changes” for Justin Bieber (6 to No.10), while the No.1 album from this week last year is down three spots to No.8, the Billie Eilish set “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”.
