Royal Blood reached No. 1 with all of their previous studio albums, and they’re showing no signs of stopping. The British rock duo extended their perfect streak atop the UK album chart with their latest album Back to the Water Below.

The rock duo, comprising Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, dropped their new LP on September 1. Its release was preceded by singles “Mountains at Midnight” and “Pull Me Through”, and they dropped the third single “Shiner in the Dark” after the album already hit the shelves.

Back to the Water Below joins the band’s albums Royal Blood (2014), How Did We Get So Dark (2017), and Typhoons (2021) as their fourth consecutive album to hit No. 1 in their home country, continuing the duo’s flawless run.

Royal Blood thanked everyone who supported Back to the Water Below, helping it hit No. 1 in their home country.

“To everyone that’s gone out and bought this record, streamed this record – whatever you’ve done to go and listen to it – thank you so much. This is f—ing incredible. We love you, thank you!” said the duo in a statement.

As for the rest of the UK album chart for this week, Travis Scott’s former leader Utopia rebounded at No. 2, while The 1975’s self-titled debut album returned to No. 3 following its tenth-anniversary reissue.
