Motionless in White Scores Third Top Hard Rock Albums No. 1

'Scoring the End of the World' is the band's first ruler since 2017's 'Graveyard Shift.'

Motionless in White snags its third No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Hard Rock Albums chart with Scoring the End of the World, which bows atop the June 25-dated survey.

World starts with 30,000 equivalent album units earned in the June 10-16 tracking week, according to Luminate, with 23,000 from album sales.

The band, which formed in Scranton, Pa., in 2005, first ruled Top Hard Rock Albums with 2014’s Reincarnate, followed by 2017’s Graveyard Shift. In between the latter and World, Disguise peaked at No. 2 in 2019.
