Red Hot Chili Peppers Debut At Number 1

Red Hot Chili Peppers have a number one debut on the ARIA Albums Chart with their first album in five years The Getaway, making it their fifth time at the top in Australia.

Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool narrowly outsold Red Hot Chili Peppers' to take the number-one spot on this week's U.K.'s Official Albums Chart. The latest effort from Thom Yorke and company sold 44,000 copies, while Anthony Kiedis' band sold 40,000 copies with their new album.

A Moon Shaped Pool previously topped the U.K.'s Official Albums Chart when it was released digitally on May 8. The album, Radiohead's ninth, was released on physical formats June 17.

With A Moon Shaped Pool, Radiohead has a total of six number-one albums in their home country, while Red Hot Chili Peppers have earned four U.K. number-ones.

In the U.S., Red Hot Chili Peppers fell short of dethroning Drake who just scored his eighth week at number one with Views at the top spot on the Billboard 200. The Getaway sits at number 2.
