Red Hot Chili Peppers’ ‘The Getaway’ Rides to No. 1 in Australia

The Chili Peppers latest bows at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, to deny Radiohead the top spot with A Moon Shaped Pool.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are enjoying a hot start Down Under with The Getaway (Warner), which gives the American rockers’ their first No. 1 in the market for a decade. 

The Chili Peppers’ latest bows at the top of the latest ARIA Albums Chart, to deny Radiohead top spot with A Moon Shaped Pool (XL/Inertia). 

The Temper Trap and Drake Lead Australia’s Charts 


The Getaway follows the Chili Peppers’ No. 2-peaking I’m With You from Sept. 2011 and provides the veteran act its first chart-topper since the Stadium Arcadium double-album reached the summit in May 2006. RHCP also topped the chart with Blood Sugar Sex Magik in April 1992, One Hot Minute in September 1995, Californication in June 1999 and By The Way in July 2002.

Radiohead’s ninth album A Moon Shaped Pool cruises from No. 48 to a new peak of No. 2 on the survey following the release of its physical versions. The album only became available on Spotify June 17, as promised, more than a month after it was released on Apple Music and Tidal.

Australia’s top 5 is completed by Adele’s 25, which drops 2-3; Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Greatest Hits, up 10-4; and Beyoncé’s Lemonade (Columbia/Sony), down 4-5.
