In a big week for new music, the top three albums this week are all new entrants to the charts.
British metalcore band Architects have scored their first #1 album on the ARIA Charts as they debut in the top spot with their ninth album For Those That Wish To Exist. Before this week their highest score in the charts was All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, which peaked at number two in 2016. For Those That Wish To Exist also tops this week’s ARIA Vinyl Albums Chart.
In second place this week is Sheppard’s Kaleidoscope Eyes. This comes three years after hitting number one with Watching The Sky in June 2018. Last year was a big year for the band: they released a single every month between February and December and they also performed at the AFL Grand Final, held in their hometown of Brisbane for the first time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Kaleidoscope Eyes is Sheppard’s third straight top two album, having also hit number two with debut album Bombs Away in 2014.
In third place, Alice Cooper claims his highest-charting album on the ARIA Charts with Detroit Stories. It becomes Cooper’s eighth top ten album in Australia and second top ten studio album in a row. His 21st solo album, Detroit Stories is the follow-up to Paranormal which peaked at number four in 2017.
