Red Hot Chili Peppers debut The Getaway on US charts

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have debuted their latest album, “The Getaway”, at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200.

Billboard reports the project enters the chart with opening week sales of 118,000 equivalent album units (108,000 in traditional album sales).

It’s the seventh US top 10 album for the group, and third to hit the No. 2 slot following 2011’s “I’m With You” and 2002’s “By The Way”; the Chili Peppers notched one No. 1 album, “Stadium Arcadium”, in 2006.

“The Getaway” also debuts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart, which ranks the top selling albums of the week.

Produced by Danger Mouse, the record marks the Los Angeles group’s first album in five years and was launched with the lead single and video for the track “Dark Necessities.”

The Chili Peppers recently guested on the latest episode of “Carpool Karaoke” on CBS-TV’s The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The band are currently playing festival dates across Europe.
