Vampire Weekend: Father of the Bride is #1

Father of the Bride by Vampire Weekend becomes the band’s third number-one album this week as it tops the Billboard 200 with 138,000 equivalent album units, of which 119,000 were album sales.

Father secures the largest week for a rock album in 2019 in both units and album sales, and the biggest since Mumford & Sons’ Delta debuted at No. 1 with 230,000 units (214,000 in album sales) on the list dated Dec. 1, 2018.

Vampire Weekend previously led the Billboard 200 with their last two studio releases, Modern Vampires of the City (in 2013) and Contra (2010).
