Victorious Charts at #17 in Australia
February 27, 2016 by Andre
The first batch of chart positions for Victorious have been published and the news is mainly brilliant! The album has surpassed the band’s previous highest positions in several territories, including both Belgian regions (Flanders: #35, Wallonia: #49), Germany (#9) and Italy (#92).
Similarly, the release has equalled the band’s previous record in the UK of #25 (set by Wolfmother in 2006), where it has also topped the Rock & Metal Albums Chart for the first time in their career. In the Netherlands, the album debuted at #20 (in between the peaks of Wolfmother and Cosmic Egg).
The news is slightly less positive in the band’s home country, though, where Victorious has debuted at number 17 on the ARIA Albums Chart. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the position won’t improve in the coming weeks, but both Wolfmother and Cosmic Egg debuted at their peak positions of #3 upon release. Nonetheless, charting within the top 20 is obviously good news!
Many charts are yet to be published and will come to light in the coming days, including other regions in Europe, New Zealand, and the range of US and Canadian Billboard charts.
