Kasabian Put An End To Ed Sheeran's Album Chart Domination With 'For Crying Out Loud'!
'For Crying Out Loud' removes 'Divide' from No.1 after two months at the top of the chart...
Ed Sheeran's ÷ has been No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart for nine weeks but NO MORE - Kasabian have put an end to the singer-songwriter's domination with their sixth studio LP For Crying Out Loud.
For Crying Out Loud marks the band's fifth consecutive No.1 album, having this week banked 52,000 combined chart sales, 5,000 more than Ed.
Serge (pictured above with bandmate Chris) told OfficialCharts.com: “It’s absolutely incredible to have five Number 1 albums in a row. Thanks to everyone who has supported us. We can’t wait to play the new tracks on the road this summer.”

Kasabian's Tom and Serge recently came record shopping with us at Rough Trade West to talk Thundercat (“I’d say Thundercat’s the best bass player in the world right now”), N.W.A (“I love Straight Outta Compton so much. It was like punk, when it came out”), Flying Lotus ([Lotus made] one of the best albums I’ve ever heard”), and much more. Check it out below:
