May 30, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – One More Light, the seventh studio album from rock outliers Linkin Park, debuts at #1, their sixth album with a #1 debut and the band’s 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200. The album launched with 111,000 equivalent units in the week ending May 25th.
“Topping the chart for the sixth time, Linkin Park joins a small group of rock bands that have done the same. Just nine bands in total have scored at least six No.1 albums: The Beatles (with 19), The Rolling Stones (nine), Led Zeppelin and U2 (both with seven), and Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Eagles, Linkin Park and Metallica (all with six each).” – Billboard
“Linkin Park are always pushing themselves and pushing us to break new fresh creative ground, and this album is certainly no exception,” said Dan McCarroll, President, Warner Bros. Records.
Linkin Park was everywhere during their album release week with a slew of buzz-worthy events. They kicked off the week with a pop-up performance in a New York subway on Good Morning America, then headed to LA to play the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where fans were treated to a seven-song set of new material and LP classics. The band then hit Vegas and hosted a One More Light worldwide listening party through all their social platforms, then headlined the sold-out opening night of CBS Radio’s “SPF 2017.” The week commenced with an Album Listening Party and a live performance at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank.
See Linkin Park live this summer on the One More Light World Tour, with special guests Machine Gun Kelly, Snoop Dogg, and ONE OK ROCK. And don’t miss their “Welcome to Blinkin Park” co-headline dates with Blink-182 (see itinerary for dates).
