Avenged Sevenfold could score their first ever UK Number (1) album this week with ‘Hail To The King’ knocking Britain’s Got Talent stars Richard and Adam off the top spot.

Richard and Adam have recently fought off competition from Travis, John Mayer and Rudimental.

It looks like US Rockers Avenged Sevenfold may just be too hard to beat according to information from The Official Charts Company.

Avenged Sevenfold who released their new album on the 26th of August (Monday) look like they are on course to end Britain’s Got Talent stars Richard and Adams four week reign at the top of The Official Albums Chart with their sixth studio album ‘Hail To The King’.

‘The Impossible Dream’ by Richard and Adam has fallen five places this week into the Number (6) spot.

If ‘Hail To The King’ can maintain its current lead going into this Sunday it will be the first time Avenged Sevenfold have had a UK Number 1 album in the UK and will be their highest charting album since 2010’s ‘Nightmare’ which reached Number five.


Naughty Boy is currently one place behind Avenged Sevenfold with his debut album ‘Hotel Cabana’ which sits at Number (2). The rising UK producer worked with Emeli Sandeon her album ‘Our Version Of Events’ which went on to become the biggest selling album of last year.

Ellie Goulding, who looks set to remain at number one in the singles chart has recently released her second album ‘Halcyon’ as a repackaged version as she believes the album still has more to offer.

‘Halcyon Days’ as the new album is called currently sits at Number (3) while ‘Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) by Bob Dylan debuts in at Number (4).


Franz Ferdinand return to the albums chart with their fourth studio album ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’ completes the chart this week at Number (5).

New entries in the album chart this week include Newton Faulkner at Number (7) with ‘Studio Zoo’. Faulkner recorded the album over a five week period in his home studio in East London.

Belle & Sebastian are Number (25) in the charts with ‘The Third Eye Centre’ and Fisherman’s Friends are on course to score their second Top 40 album with ‘One And All’ at Number (14).

Finally with a self-titled album Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros complete the new entries this week at Number (34).
