The final summer of the naughties sees Pendulum take position at the top of the album charts.

Released over the bank holiday weekend, their new album ‘Immersion‘ achieved sales of nearly 60,000 all in the very first week. That’s almost 14,000 more than the band’s nearest rival Michael Buble.

This triumphant success built upon their first ever sold-out headlining tour, ending with their typical energetic performance at the Swindon Oasis Centre on May 31st. In addition to this tour, Pendulum also headlined BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend where they performed alongside other bands including Biffy Clyro and Paramore.

Pendulum looks maintain their pace through a variety of gigs and releases over the summer. The release of the single ‘Witchcraft‘ on July 12th looks to boost the reputation of their new album, whilst their tour dates in Europe and Japan look to maintain their global status. However, the Pendulum UK fan-base will be looking closely at their dates for the summer festivals, listed below:

JUNE

11 – RockNess, Clash / Goldenvoice Arena (headliners)

24 – Milton Keynes National Bowl (special guests to The Prodigy)

JULY

30 London, Victoria Park (special guests to Tiesto)

AUGUST

1 Sonisphere (second on the bill to Iron Maiden)

27 – Leeds Festival, NME / Radio 1 Stage (headliners)

28 – Reading Festival, NME / Radio 1 Stage (headliners)
