Kings Of Leon scored the top-selling album in Australia in 2008, it was announced today (January 9).

The American rockers' fourth album, 'Only By The Night', sold more than 350,000 copies down under and spent four weeks at the top of the Australian charts, reports the Australian Recording Industry Association.

The band didn't fare so well in their home country, however, selling just 253,000 copies of the album last year, reports Billboard.

Meanwhile, the Tennessee band boasted the Number Three best-selling album in the UK for 2008.
