Thrice‘s Palms debuts atop Billboard‘s Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts with 18,000 equivalent album units earned (16,000 in traditional album sales), according to Nielsen Music, on the Sept. 29-dated lists.
Palms is the group’s second total and consecutive No. 1 on both charts, following To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere, which ruled the rankings dated June 18, 2016, with 21,000 copies sold in its first week.
The new album’s success continues a resurgence for the band, which first reached Billboard surveys in 2002 and notched a handful of airplay chart hits in the mid-2000s. Thrice then spent a decade away from the airplay tallies before more recent triumphs that include a pair of top 20s on Mainstream Rock Songs, including current single “The Grey,” which lifts 18-17.
Palms is also Thrice’s highest-charting album on the Top Album Sales chart, entering the all-format ranking at No. 7. (To Be Everywhere reached No. 8.)
The new set is the rockers’ 10th studio album and first released on Epitaph Records; the band recorded for Vagrant Records from 2007 to 2016.
