Cold Chisel's second comeback album No Plans has debuted in the ARIA chart at number two, as Australian music buyers remain in the grip of One Direction fever.

The No Plans set is the Australian pub rock icons first studio album since 1998's reformation release The Last Wave Of Summer.

Chisel have previously had four number one albums, including The Last Wave Of Summer.

But while the album was held from number one by One Direction's Up All Night, No Plans did debut at number one on the Digital Albums sales chart - knocking the UK boy band to the second spot.
