For the first time in three years, Halestorm tops Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.

“Back From the Dead,” the first taste of the band’s upcoming fifth studio album, jumps 3-1 on the survey dated Nov. 6. It’s Halestorm’s fifth No. 1 and first since “Uncomfortable,” which ruled for two weeks beginning in August 2018.

The Lzzy Hale-led act first crowned the list in 2013 with “Freak Like Me.” Between “Uncomfortable” and “Back,” Halestorm charted three titles: “Do Not Disturb” (No. 8, February 2019), “Vicious” (No. 13, June 2019) and “Black Vultures” (No. 25, November 2019).
