The band claims its best sales week yet with latest album--the 19th indie-distributed chart-topper.
Vampire Weekend notches its second No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as "Modern Vampires of the City" debuts atop the list. The set sold 134,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which is a record-high sales week for the act.
The group's last album, "Contra," previously held the act's one-week sales record when it started at No. 1 in January 2010 with 124,000.
