Rival Sons snag their first leader on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, as "Do Your Worst" rises 2-1 on the March 9-dated ranking.
The band charted one prior entry, the No. 34-peaking "Keep On Swinging," in 2013.
Rival Sons signed to Atlantic Records and Low Country Sound for their new LP, Feral Roots, which helps matters; their previous four albums were released via indie label Earache.
The group is the second act to score a first Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1 in 2019, following The Glorious Sons with "S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)" for four weeks in January and February.
"Do Your Worst" also reaches a new high on the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, pushing 17-16 with 3.9 million audience impressions, up 8 percent, according to Nielsen Music.
Feral Roots bowed at No. 6 on the Hard Rock Albums chart (Feb. 9), earning 7,000 units in its first week.
