The 1975’s self-titled debut tops the album charts

British band The 1975 have debuted at the top of the album charts with their self-titled first album.

The record has already had quite a bit of chart success as it boasts three Top 40 hits including ‘Chocolate’, ‘The City’ and ‘Sex’.

The album knocks Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Hail to the King’ off the top spot and down seven places to No. 8. The closest competition to the monster debut is Nine Inch Nails’ comeback effort ‘Hesitation Marks’, but was outsold by more than two –and-a-half copies to one. However, the No. 2 spot represents frontman Trent Reznor’s highest UK chart position in his career.

In at No. 3, and rounding out a top three of chart entries, is Rizzle Kicks with their second studio album ‘Roaring 20s’. Richard And Adam’s ‘The Impossible Dream’ and Ellie Goulding’s ‘Halcyon’ hit Nos 4 and 5 respectively.

Other notable debuts this week include Ariana Grande with ‘Yours Truly’ at No. 7 and Pete Doherty’s Babyshambles snag their second Top 10 record with ‘Sequel to the Prequel’ at No. 10.
