All good things come in… four! With their new album “Crisis of Faith”, Billy Talent are the new #1 in the German album charts and are thus taking their fourth pole position in this country. After “Dead Silence” (2012) and “Afraid of Heights” (2016), it is also the third #1 in a row.

The well-deserved reward for a work that delighted fans and critics right away, according to Classic Rock: “The global audience of millions gets an album that was composed and arranged more cleverly than ever”, Visions judges:“’Crisis Of Faith’ – Billy Talent’s sixth album couldn’t be titled more appropriately. Their new album is full of criticism of society and politics – and reveals new musical facets of Canadians” , and Rock Hard enthuses: “What Billy Talent do on their sixth album always puts a smile on your face.”

With how much anticipation the fans have been waiting for new music from the Canadian rock icons show the figures for the three previously released singles “Reckless Paradise” , “I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better)” and “End of Me” (feat. Rivers Cuomo), all of which catapulted themselves to number 1 on the Rock Airplay Charts. The LP contains 10 tracks in total and was produced entirely by Ian D’Sa, the band’s guitarist and main songwriter. To date, Billy Talent have sold more than 1.3 million album units in Germany.

This summer, fans can celebrate the success of the new album alongside Billy Talent as the band co-headliner at Rock am Ring/Rock im Park (03-05 June).
