A Day to Remember Triples Up Atop Billboard Rock Album Charts

Billboard

A Day to Remember rules three Billboard rock album charts, as Bad Vibrations, the Florida-based quintet's sixth studio set, opens at No. 1 on Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums (dated Sept. 24) with 62,000 sold, according to Nielsen Music.

The release is the act's first Top Rock Albums chart-topper, second on Alternative and third on Hard Rock. It's also a personal-best sales week for the band, topping the 58,000-copy opening of 2010's What Separates Me From You.

A Day to Remember Storms Hot Rock Songs With 'Paranoia'

Previously, the band rose as high as No. 2 on Top Rock Albums with Separates, which also topped Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums. Additionally, Common Courtesy opened atop Hard Rock Albums (with 13,000) in 2014.

Vibrations is the first record for the band with Epitaph Records; previously, the band released music via Victory but sued the label in 2011 due to what it claimed was breach of contract, eventually self-releasing Courtesy.

The new LP is the fourth album in 2016 to top all three charts, following Chevelle's The North Corridor (July 30), Thrice's To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere (June 18) and Pierce the Veil's Misadventures (June 4). Six albums achieved the feat in 2015, while seven did so in 2014. Since 2014, Chevelle has earned the distinction twice, also with 2014's La Gargola.

Vibrations also begins at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, marking the band's first top 10; Separates reached No. 11.


Upon the new record's arrival, A Day to Remember places four titles on Hot Rock Songs, led by the set's first single, "Paranoia," which re-enters at No. 31 (after debuting and peaking at No. 13 in April). "We Got This" and "Naivety" debut at Nos. 42 and 43, respectively, while the title track re-enters at No. 46.

The other top 10 debut on Top Rock Albums is Angel Olsen's My Woman, which starts at No. 4 with 9,000 sold. It begins at the same spot on Alternative Albums and No. 2 on Americana/Folk Albums. It's the best debut and rank on each chart for the 29-year-old from St. Louis, as well as her top sales week. 2014's Burn Your Fire for No Witness reached No. 19 on Top Rock Albums and No. 12 on Alternative Albums.
