The act is the fourth to score a first No. 1 in 2019, following Maggie Rogers, Vampire Weekend & Brittany Howard.

CAAMP earn its first No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart, as "Peach Fuzz" rises 2-1 on the Nov. 2-dated ranking.

The Columbus, Ohio, trio is the fourth act to earn a first No. 1 on the survey in 2019, as it follows in the footsteps of Maggie Rogers ("Light On"), Vampire Weekend ("Harmony Hall") and Brittany Howard ("Stay High"). Both CAAMP and Howard led in their first appearances on the list (though Howard had previously charted, and led, as frontwoman of Alabama Shakes).

Comparatively, three acts achieved first No. 1s (as lead artists) in 2018: Elle King, Jade Bird and The War on Drugs. An especially robust eight first-timers ruled in 2017.

CAAMP's rise to No. 1 follows the band's first chart appearances on Aug. 10-dated Billboard tallies, which brought the debut of "Peach Fuzz" on Adult Alternative Songs and the group's latest album, By & By, on multiple charts, led by a No. 1 launch on Heatseekers Albums and a No. 14 bow on Alternative Albums, with 6,000 album units earned, according to Nielsen Music.

"Peach Fuzz" concurrently breaks into the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart's top 40, jumping 47-38 with a 22% boost to 1.5 million audience impressions.
