Faith No More’s Sol Invictus has gone straight in at number 2 in Australia’s ARIA album charts.

It matches the #2 slot attained by King for a Day… and The Real Thing though previous album Album of the Year was a number 1.

The band were held off the top spot by local act Hermitude.

UPDATE:

Faith No More were way ahead on the physical album sales. Sol Invictus sold twice as many as second-best selling album Pitch Perfect on physical sales. Indeed, it sold almost 3 times as many physical copies as Hermitude.

But thanks to digital sales, the Aussie act ended up over 3,000 sales ahead if FNM in the overall chart.
