Kings Of Leon Reach New Heights In Us Charts

by | 02 October 2008

Only By The Night, the fourth album by Kings of Leon, has debuted at number five in the US, the band's highest-ever position in their homeland.

The Followills' new effort shipped 74,000 copies in its first week on sale in the US to enter the Billboard Hot 200 at number five, far surpassing their previous best of 25th with 2007's Because of the Times.

The quartet remain at the top of the singles and album charts in the UK, though their track Sex on Fire is expected to be unseated this week as new singles from Pink and Oasis battle for the top spot.

Metallica's Death Magnetic held the number one spot in the US, despite a 61 per cent decline in sales, making it only the second album this year to hold the Billboard Hot 200 crown for three consecutive weeks, after Jack Johnson's Sleep Through the Static.

Disney singer Demi Lovato debuted at number two with Don't Forget while the Pussycat Dolls' second album Doll Domination opened in fourth.

The top ten albums on the Billboard Hot 200 are: (last week's position)

1 Metallica: Death Magnetic (1)
2 Demi Lovato: Don't Forget (-)
3 Ne-Yo: Year of the Gentleman (2)
4 Pussycat Dolls: Doll Domination (-)
