Arcade Fire‘s new album, WE, has debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.

The sixth studio effort from the Canadian indie rockers lands at number six on the ranking with close to 32,000 equivalent album units, 26,500 of which were traditional album sales. That latter figure makes WE the best-selling album of the week.

Arcade Fire has previously hit number one on the Billboard 200 three times, with 2010’s The Suburbs, 2013’s Reflektor and 2017’s Everything Now. And while WE continues Arcade Fire’s streak of top-10 albums that began with 2007’s Neon Bible, it’s technically the band’s lowest-charting record since their 2004 debut, Funeral, which peaked at number 123.

Arcade Fire will launch a U.S. tour in support of WE in October.
