U.K. MIDWEEKS: ROCK ACTS RULE

Green Day should claim its fifth U.K. Official Albums #1 on Friday. In fact, the top three slots welcome new arrivals from rock bands. Over on singles, where “Stick Season” (Republic) is holding strong at the top, Noah Kahan aims to augment his Top 10 tally.

Saviors (Reprise) is outselling the rest of the Top 10 combined at the halfway point.

Elsewhere, Welsh pop-punk outfit Neck Deep could claim their highest-charting album yet with Neck Deep (Hopeless) at #2.

This week’s rock theme continues with heavy metal band Saxon on track for their first Top 3 with Hell Fire and Damnation (Militia Guard Music) at #3.

Outside the Top 10, yet another rock act, South of Salem, are at #14 with their self-released Death of the Party. Teddy Swims’ with I’ve Tried Everything but Therapy (Part 1) (Warner Records) continues to rise, now at #20.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, “Stick Season” is currently 7k sales ahead of its closest competition. Should it hold onto its lead, Friday will be its fourth week at #1.

This week’s highest new entry could also go to Kahan. His “Homesick” with Sam Fender is expected to debut at #3.

“Murder on the Dancefloor” (Polydor) by Sophie Ellis-Bextor is up again, rising one to #2. TikTok star Benson Boone could have his first Top 20 with “Beautiful Things” (Night Street/Warner) at #13.
