Green Day’s ‘Saviors’ Debuts Atop U.K. Albums Chart

Green Day are celebrating their fifth No. 1 album on the U.K. Albums Chart with Saviors this week.

The 14th studio LP from U.S. punk-pop icons Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt, Saviors was released on January 19.

“Thank you so much for our fifth Official Number 1 record in the UK. We’re so excited about our future, about our album Saviors and just want to thank all the fans everywhere; the most important people to us!,” said lead vocalist and guitarist Armstrong.

He added, “Fans, friends, family, whatever you want to call it. It’s been an amazing run for us so far, for decades, and we love you all. We’re really, truly grateful for this.”

Saviors also tops this week’s Official Vinyl Albums Chart, with one third of its total sales made up of vinyl purchases, and enjoys a Top 5 debut on the Official Record Store Chart at No. 3; one of the most-purchased physical LPs in the U.K.’s independent record shops this week.

American Idiot (2004), 21st Century Breakdown (2009), Revolution Radio (2016) and Father of All. (2020) are the other albums in the band’s tally of U.K. chart-toppers.

With five chart-toppers to their name, Green Day now tie with the likes of Foo Fighters, Prince and Celine Dion on the list of acts with the most No. 1s on the Official Albums Chart.

Meanwhile, Vermont singer-songwriter Noah Kahan earns a brand-new peak for his third studio album Stick Season this week, at No. 2, on the latest chart.
