Panic! At The Disco’s Pray For The Wicked (Atlantic/Warner) bows at the top of Australia’s albums survey while 5 Seconds of Summer enter a sixth consecutive week at No. 1 on the national singles chart with “Youngblood” (Capitol/EMI).
Pray For The Wicked arrives at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart ten years after Panic! At The Disco’s first chart-topper, Pretty. Odd, and two-and-a-half years after Death Of A Bachelor reached No. 3.
Panic! at the Disco also bows atop the Streets Talkin 200 with Pray, the U.S. alternative rock outfit’s sixth studio album.
Also on this week’s ARIA charts, XXXTentacion’s catalog is in posthumous demand as the rapper’s sophomore album Question Mark (Caroline/Universal) rises 5-2, a new high, and his singles “Sad” (up 8-4), “Jocelyn Flores” (new at No. 8) and “Changes” (34-15) scale new chart peaks.
Meanwhile, Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails lands a fifth top 10 entry on the ARIA Albums Chart with Bad Witch (Caroline/Universal), new at No. 9, while Tasmanian melodic punk outfit Luca Brasi scores a first top 10 entry with Stay (Cooking Vinyl/Sony), their fourth album, which enters at No. 10. Sydney-based singer and songwriter Jack River (aka Holly Rankin) just misses a berth in the top 10 with Sugar Mountain (IOU/Universal), her debut full-length album. It starts at No. 11.
