The British rock band lands its first airplay chart No. 1.

For the first time in its career, Bring Me the Horizon tops a Billboard airplay chart.

After debuting at No. 1 on the Top Rock, Alternative and Hard Rock Albums charts with That's the Spirit last month (on the lists dated Oct. 3), the British band bumps 3-1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs radio airplay ranking with "Throne," the new album's second single. The group scores its first airplay chart-topper; it previously peaked as high as No. 8 on Mainstream Rock Songs with "Drown," the set's lead single.

Thus concludes a nearly five-month climb to the top of Mainstream Rock Songs for "Throne." The track also debuts at No. 39 on Alternative Songs, marking the band's first visit to the chart.

Spirit is Bring Me the Horizon's fifth studio album and first since 2013's Semptiternal.
