Wet Leg debut #1 with self-titled album

Releasing their debut self-titled album, British indie rock duo Wet Leg debut at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Formed on the Isle of Wight in 2019 by guitarists/vocalists/songwriters Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, Wet Leg released their first single, ‘Chaise Longue’, in June 2021. They're scheduled to tour Australia in July, performing at Splendour In The Grass, a number of headline shows and as support for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Australian pop punk band Short Stack debut at #8 with Maybe There’s No Heaven. The Sydney trio’s fourth album is their first to be released since the announcement in February 2020 that they would reunite for a second time. Originally slated for release in February 2022, the album was delayed to coincide with the band’s national tour which kicks off in June. Maybe There’s No Heaven is the band’s fourth Top Ten ARIA Album Chart placement, having previously charted with Stack Is The New Black (#1 Aug. ’09), This Is Bat Country (#6 Nov. ‘10) and Homecoming (#5 Aug. ‘15).

Tool’s Fear Inoculum re-enters the chart at #12 following the re-release of the album as a 5LP box set. The American progressive metal band took out their third #1 album in Australia when their fifth album spent a week in the top spot in September 2019.

Cuban-born, American singer-songwriter Camilla Cabello debuts at #27 with her third studio album Familia. Cabello launched the album last week with an exclusive live TikTok concert where she performed the tracks ‘Quiet', ‘Psychofreak’, ‘La Buena Vida’, ‘Hasta Los Dientes’ and ‘Everyone At This Party’. Familia is the pop superstar’s third solo Top 50 entry following Camila (#3 Jan. ‘17) and Romance (#6 Dec. ‘19).

Jack Harlow’s debut album That’s What They All Say re-enters the ARIA Album Charts at #36 following the release of his latest single ‘First Class’ and ahead of his upcoming album Come Home The Kids Miss You. Previously peaking at #40 in January 2021, this is the album’s highest peak.
