Architects score their highest sales, chart debut

All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, the new album from British metalcore/post-hardcore outfit Architects, has debuted at No. 109 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of roughly 5,500 in the United States. Meanwhile, the record landed at No. 9 on the Independent Albums chart and No. 13 on the Top Rock Albums chart. This is both the highest sales and chart debut for the band in the United States since their 2004 formation. Their previous album, Lost Forever // Lost Together (2014), sold 2,900 copies in its first week, debuting at No. 125 on the Billboard 200. Architects' 2012 release, Daybreaker, tallied first-week sales of 1,200, not enough to chart on the Billboard 200.
