New Sigur Rós Album a Success in the US

sigurros_valtari_coverValtari, the new album by Icelandic post-rock group Sigur Rós, has sold in 26,000 copies in the US since its release in late May. The album is currently in seventh place on the Billboard chart, issued today.

This is a personal record for Sigur Rós, whose greatest achievement on the chart so far was 15th place in 2008, when the band sold 32,000 copies of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, reports.

However, the Icelandic record on the Billboard chart is held by Of Monsters And Men who reached sixth place in early April with their album My Head Is An Animal.

The album is still on the list, now in 20th place, which is considered a noteworthy achievement. The album places eighth on the rock album chart.
