Against the odds surrounding them, Linkin Park has persevered through waves of negative criticism surrounding their newest offering, 'One More Light' and claimed the No.1 spot across Billboard charts.
Billboard reports that the band now joins and elite group of artists that have had six or more studio albums reach the No.1 spot on their charts. The list is as follows, The Beatles still claim the throne with 19, The Rolling Stones at nine, Led Zeppelin and U2 at seven, and Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Eagles, Metallica and now Linkin Park have six.
'One More Light' is now the band's seventh studio effort and although this is their sixth No.1 award, all of their studio efforts have reached top 10 status including all collaborative projects.
Linkin Park have also announced the dates of their North American tour which will feature support from Machine Gun Kelly. All single-full priced ticket purchases will include a choice of physical or digital copy of 'One More Light.' Additionally, $1 of each sale will go to the band's Music for Relief organization.
