As anticipated, Foo Fighters‘ new album Concrete And Gold has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 127,000 copies during its first week on sale according to Neilsen Music.
Of those 120,000 were “traditional album sales,” while the rest came from streaming and other services. It’s the Foos’ second No. 1 album on Billboard, following 2011’s Wasting Light.
Concrete And Gold also topped charts in the U.K., the group’s fourth No. 1 album across the pond. The Foos begin their North American tour on October 7 at Cal Jam in San Bernardino, Calif.
