Although unsurprisingly beaten to the top spot in the UK by Harry Styles who's new album Harry's House was also released last Friday, Closure/Continuation has landed at No. 2 in the UK album charts. The band's previous highest charting album was 2009's The Incident, which reached No. 23.
“We would like to thank both our long time fans and newer listeners, and all involved with this album release," the band said in a statement. "To find ourselves at #2 in the Official UK Album Charts amongst the biggest mainstream artists in the world with such an alternative and uncompromising work is an achievement we are hugely proud of. Thank you!”
Closure/Continuation is also No 1 in the UK Download, Physical, CD, Cassette, Vinyl, Rock/Metal charts and the Scottish chart.
