Early sales figures suggest that Faith No More‘s seventh studio album will hit the top 5 in the Official UK album charts when they are announced on Sunday.

Sol Invictus is believed to be in third spot in the early album sales behind other new entries from Brandon Flowers and Paul Weller. It is believed to be selling at around half the rate of Weller’s Saturns Pattern.
The album is number 6 in Amazon.co.uk’s CD chart and number 2 in the their digital music chart. It is also #13 in the UK iTunes albums charts.

Faith No More’s last 3 studio albums all reached the top 10 in the UK album charts – Angel Dust peaked at 2, King for a Day at 5 and Album of the Year at 7. They all went in at those peak positions in their first week.

We’ll update as more detailed midweek figures become available.
