Australian heavy-hitters The Amity Affliction have added another impressive accolade to their increasingly growing musical CV, with the band entering the ARIA Charts in the number one position.
The group released their new album ‘Chasing Ghosts’ last Friday and in the recently released weekly ARIA Charts debuted in the top spot.
The Amity Affliction outsold new albums by The xx and Presets respectively, which marks a massive achievement in the local heavy music community.
The Amity Affliction wrote the following on their Facebook page:
