Brand New and Neck Deep both have new albums that have hit no. 1 and 2 respectively on Billboard’s Top Rock Album Chart. It’s a personal best for both bands. Billboard writes:
Brand New leads both Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts for the first time, as Science Fiction debuts at No. 1 with 58,000 equivalent album units on the rankings dated Sept. 9, according to Nielsen Music.
The No. 2 album on Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums is also a debut, as Neck Deep bows with The Peace and the Panic, moving 32,000 units (29,000 in traditional sales). That marks the best sales week to date for the band, following the 18,000-copy start of 2015’s Life’s Not Out to Get You, which doubled as Neck Deep’s previous best-charting album on both surveys (No. 3, 2015).
