Congratulations are in order to Vampire Weekend, who just achieved their third No. 1 album with Father of the Bride. Even more impressive, the band’s ambitious fourth full-length is the top performing rock album of 2019 thus far.
According to Billboard, Father of the Bride moved 138,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, a career high for BTS. Of that number, 119,000 units came from pure album sales. Both totals mark the largest for any rock album released this year.
