Pop punk kings of both Australia and the UK

More 5 Seconds Of Summer More 5 Seconds Of Summer

Aussies pop punk outfit 5 Seconds Of Summer have harnessed the buying-power of their droves of teenage fans this week and picked up their second consecutive #1 ARIA Album, as well as their very first #1 UK Album, with their latest, Sounds Good Feels Good.

The Sydney quartet achieved the same accolade with their 2014 self-titled debut, having worked with pop punk production royalty, John Feldmann (All Time Low, Panic! At The Disco, Good Charlotte, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus), on both records. Their level of stoked-ness with the news is probably the reason they've changed their Twitter name to "5 Seconds Of Sexx", though we're not sure that's something to be proud of.

Coming in at #2 as expected is US singer and The X-Factor judge Chris Isaak with First Comes The Night.

Other local debuts this week include South African-born, Aussie singer Nathaniel with Yours at #5, Kiwi dub seven-piece Fat Freddy's Drop with Bays at #12, iconic Aussie singer/songwriter Russell Morris with Red Dirt — Red Heart at #21 and finally, Drew McAlister at #99 with Black Sky.

Meanwhile, back at the top end of the charts, internationals like US country songstress Carrie Underwood with Storyteller came in at #4, while Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli took out #7 with Cinema. 

Over on the Singles Chart, to no surprise Adele was crowned queen with her new single, Hello, at #1 while Justin Bieber came in at #2 with undeniably catchy new track, Sorry
