Up the Irons!

Iron Maiden has the Number 1 Album and Number 1 single in the UK.

British rock perennials Iron Maiden extended their run of U.K. No. 1 albums to 28 years, and their overall album chart span to 30 years, with "The Final Frontier" (EMI).

On the new singles chart, Relentless/Virgin's British "grime" collective Roll Deep debuted at No. 1 with "Green Light," to give EMI labels a double success.

"The Final Frontier" is Iron Maiden's fourth U.K. No. 1 album, a sequence that began in 1982 with "The Number of the Beast." The band also hit the top with "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" in 1988 and "Fear of the Dark" four years later. The new set, the band's 15th studio album, follows 2006's "A Matter of Life and Death," which debuted at No. 4.
