Mastodon barreled in this week at the top of the Billboard Album sales chart with their newest offering "Emperor Of Sand", marking it as the band's biggest sales success to date. The record also made its way to the top of Billboard Alternative Albums, Rock Albums, Hard Music Albums and Physical Albums charts at the loftiest position at No. 1 spot.
The album also reached No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 which now includes streaming services rather than just physical sales.
Mastodon had this to say on their success; "We want to thank all of our fans for running out and picking up a copy of our new album Emperor Of Sand. The support you guys have shown us has been unbelievable. The album is an important and emotional one for us and it makes us very happy that it is connecting with you. We're excited to play it for you on tour!! See you soon!"
