Lime Cordiale has romped into the #1 position in the ARIA Album Chart this week with their acclaimed studio album 14 STEPS TO A BETTER YOU via Chugg Music and London Cowboys. Brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach have also achieved the highest first week album sales for an Australian artist studio album 2020, in addition to a staggering 34 sold-out shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle and Adelaide.
“Lime Cordiale are one of the two acts I started Chugg Music with eight years ago after I saw them play a small room in Sydney. Along with my partner Andrew Stone and the wonderful team we have assembled at Chugg Music, we always believed that the brothers Louis & Oliver had the licks and ability to rise to the top. They’re two of the nicest, loveable, funniest and original characters in the music world with thousands of fans all over the world. Having the #1 Australian album is a dream come true and trust me this is just the beginning,” says Michael Chugg AM, Executive Chairman of Chugg Entertainment & Chugg Music of the achievement.
