Kings of Leon have secured their fifth UK No.1 with their new album WALLS.
WALLS, the multi-platinum selling band's seventh studio album was released through Columbia Records last week and achieved first-week sales of just under 50,000.
Jason Iley, chairman and CEO, Sony Music UK and Ireland, said: "We are all thrilled for ?Kings of Leon. For them to deliver their fifth consecutive UK No1 album is a phenomenal achievement. The band have made it seem easy though – by making such a wonderful record.”
The band performed a surprise intimate London show this week at 229 The Venue and return to the UK for a sold out five-date arena tour in February, their first UK shows in over two years. The tour will open in Leeds on February 19 and culminate in Glasgow on February 27.
Tour promoter Dave Corbet, of Live Nation UK, said: "It's so good to see the band come back with such a strong No.1 album and an excellent sold out arena tour. They are one of this generation's must-see artists."
