Decemberists Have The Number One Album In The Country

Decemberists Have The Number One Album In The Country

After two weeks of the lowest selling albums of the Soundscan era, the record business found an unlikely savior: The Decemberists, whose The King Is Dead, sold 93,567 copies, or about twice as many as mainstream rock band Cake did last week. This is a huge win for The Decemberists (and Capitol for signing them a few years ago), and especially surprising since Hazards of Love only sold 19,000 in its first week. Apparently people are willing to shell out for alt-country-ish Decemberists more than they are for terrible rock opera Decemberists. Noted! 

 

Elsewhere on the charts, Kidz Bop 19 hit number two. So they can't all be winners, I guess.
