Faith No More’s Sol Invictus has gone straight in at number 2 in Australia’s ARIA album charts.

It matches the #2 slot attained by King for a Day… and The Real Thing though previous album Album of the Year was a number 1.

The band were held off the top spot by local act Hermitude.


Faith No More were way ahead on the physical album sales. Sol Invictus sold twice as many as second-best selling album Pitch Perfect on physical sales. Indeed, it sold almost 3 times as many physical copies as Hermitude.

But thanks to digital sales, the Aussie act ended up over 3,000 sales ahead if FNM in the overall chart.
