U.K., Queens of the Stone Age reach No. 1
American rockers Queens Of The Stone Age have debuted their new full-length Villains at No. 1 in the U.K. this week, granting them their first chart owner in the country. Villains is the band’s seventh studio album, released on August 25.
The album, produced by Mark Ronson, features the hit and lead single “The Way You Used to Do” and also tops this week’s Official Record Store Chart, tracking the most popular albums in independent record shops, and also takes the Number 1 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart.
Throughout their career, which now spans over 20 years, the Queens Of The Stone Age have scored half a dozen Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom, though they have always played better to an audience that doesn’t necessarily listen to what tipically goes up in charts. Four of the band’s previous six records have landed inside the Top 10, with 2013’s Like Clockwork peaking at Number 2. Check out their full Official UK Chart history here.
