Red Hot Chili Peppers are warming up for another British No.1.
The Rock Hall contestants top the UK charts during the week Boundless love (via Warner Records), surpassing its closest rival, Ed Sheeran = (same via Asylum), almost 8-to-1, reports the OCC.
Boundless love is the 12th studio album by the US alternative rock formation and the first to feature John Frusciante since he left the band in 2009.
Should it take the title Boundless love becomes the UK’s fifth No. 1 chili pepper and first since 2011 I’m with you.
Swedish metal group Meshuggah, their ninth studio album, are also enjoying great popularity among Brits this week immutable (Atomic Fire) shoots up to #5 on the official chart update.

Meanwhile, The Wanted will supercharge the charts following the death of 33-year-old singer Tom Parker on March 30.
The English band Most Wanted: Greatest hits (Iceland) returns to the top flight in 9th place. The career retrospective, released in 2021, became the group’s fourth UK Top 10 release after 2010 The searched (No. 4), 2011 battlefield (No. 5) and 2013 word of mouth (No. 9).
