Twenty One Pilots Fly to No. 1 In Australia With ‘Clancy’

Twenty One Pilots land a second No. 1 in Australia with Clancy (via Atlantic/Warner), the U.S. act’s seventh and latest studio album.

Hailing from Columbus, OH, Twenty One Pilots now boast four top 10s on the ARIA Chart, including 2018 leader Trench, plus 2015’s Blurryface (No. 7 peak) and Scaled and Icy (No. 3) in 2021.

Clancy is also on track for the U.K. crown, having led the midweek tally ahead of Paul Weller’s 66 and Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department.

After bowing at No. 1 on the ARIA Chart, Billie Eilish’s Hit Me Hard And Soft (Interscope/Universal) dips 1-2, while Swift’s Tortured Poets (Universal) slips 2-3.

U.K. heavy rock band Bring Me The Horizon enjoy a top 10 start in Australia with Post Human: Nex Gen (RCA/Sony), their ninth studio album. It’s new at No. 4 on the ARIA Chart, published Friday, May 31. The fresh release is the second in the four-album Post Human series. The first, Post Human: Survival Horror, peaked at No. 3 in 2020. The Sheffield, England act has led the national chart on four occasions: There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret (in 2010), Sempiternal (2013), That’s The Spirit (2015) and Amo (2019).

Homegrown hip-hop favorites Hilltop Hoods return to the top 10 with Walking Under Stars (Island/Universal), thanks to a 10th anniversary edition. The LP logged two weeks at No. 1 in 2014 for two weeks and is one of the Adelaide trio’s five consecutive No. 1 studio albums. Walking Under Stars won best urban album at the ARIA Awards, one of the group’s 10 career ARIAs.

Over on the singles chart, Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” (Concrete Boat Boy) enters a second week at No. 1, while country tracks Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” (Empire) and Post Malone featuring Morgan Wallen’s “I Had Some Help” (Universal) respectively complete the top 3.

The top new entry on the current frame belongs to U.S. country star Zach Bryan, whose “Pink Skies” (Warner) open up at No. 15. It’s Bryan’s third top 20 hit in Australia, following “Something In The Orange” and “I Remember Everything” with Kacey Musgraves, which both peaked at No. 6.
