Arcade Fire's 'Everything Now' Has Historic Debut
Canadian indie rock outfit Arcade Fire have a lot to be proud of right now.
Their fifth studio album, Everything Now, has officially debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving them their third straight No. 1 debut release. The group's winning streak started back in 2010 with their Album Of The Year-winning LP The Suburbs, and this latest success makes them just the second rock band of this decade to have three No. 1 debuts, following Linkin Park.
Everything Now is also only the second rock album to take a No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 in 2017, an increasingly difficult feat amid the genre's ostensible decline in popularity compared to years past.
The band can be seen tearing it up on stages around the world this fall, and if their ripping set at Lollaplooza last night is any indication, these are some shows that are simply not to be missed.
