The Official Chart Company confirmed today that Faith No More is behind Brandon Flowers and Paul Weller in the UK Midweek album chart.

They say: “US rock band Faith No More are set for their fourth UK Top 10 album this week with Sol Invictus, which is new at Number 3, while Mumford & Sons’ Wilder Mind is at 4, and Taylor Swift’s 1989 completes the Top 5.”

Both Flowers and Weller are selling at twice that rate of Sol Invictus and FNM will do well to hold off the very embodiment of the sorry state of alt-rock to take the number 3 slot.
