It seems the UK has been enjoying a little more than just Tennessee Whiskey last week as another Southern product shot straight to #1 on the Album charts.
“Brand New Eyes” is Paramore’s first UK number one, according to the Official Charts Company which compiles the chart
The band, whose sound has been likened to “pop punk” and “alternative rock,” had knocked Madonna’s greatest hits collection “Celebration” off the top spot after just one week.
Stateside the American rockers’ third album was held off by Barbara Streisand’s “Love is the Answer” as it sits in the #2 position there but managed to secure to the top spot in the US digital download chart.
This is huge for Paramore as there last release “Riot” only managed to climb to number 24 when it was released in the UK back in 2007.
Riot! went on to be certified gold in the UK and platinum in the United States, with current sales standing at over two million copies worldwide.
