Bring Me The Horizon Scores First Number One Album In U.K., Misses Billboard Top 10
Bring Me The Horizon scored its first Number One album in the U.K. with its sixth studio LP, Amo. The disc had combined first-week sales of 27,000 copies in its native country, with 61 percent of its sales on CD or vinyl. The band's previous best U.K. chart showing was Number Two with 2015's That's The Spirit.
The band thanked the fans for the achievement, saying, "Thank you to everyone in the U.K. for getting our new album Amo to Number One. Thanks for buying it and streaming it and showing us support -- it really means a lot to us. Thank you very much, we love you."
The record failed to crack the Billboard 200 album chart's Top 10 however, settling for a Number 14 debut with sales in North America of just over 26,000 units -- close to the U.K. tally. Around 16,000 of those were physical copies.
The biggest rock release on the Billboard chart's Top 10, which was published on Sunday (February 3rd), was Weezer's self-titled "Teal Album." The all-covers set debuted a week earlier at Number 47 after its surprise release on January 24th, the final day of sales tracking for that week. With a full week now behind it, the "Teal Album" moved some 39,000 copies to reach Number Five on this week's chart, earning the Rivers Cuomo-led act its ninth entry in the Top 10.
