Dance-metal sensation BABYMETAL have achieved another first, becoming the only Japanese band to ever land two TOP 20 albums in the official UK Albums chart.
The band’s third album, ‘METAL GALAXY’ was the Number one album in both the UK Official Rock Albums chart and the UK Official Independent Albums Chart. The album finished at number 19 in the UK Official Albums Chart and was the second highest new release that week to Elbow’s ‘Giants Of All Sizes’.
Internationally, the band saw their most successful first week ever outside of Japan, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart and #13 on The Billboard Top 200 – the highest position for a Japanese artist in chart history – and number 18 in the Official German Albums chart – their first Top 20s in both territories.
