Linkin Park comeback with their first new album to chart in 5 years!

Linkin Park Returns With Their First New Charting Album In Five Years

The future of Linkin Park is uncertain, and it has been ever since frontman and lead singer Chester Bennington passed away in 2017. In the years following his suicide, the band has been largely silent. Now, they return to the Billboard rankings with their first new charting album in half a decade.

Linkin Park is back on the Billboard charts this week with Lost Demos, a compilation of demos–as its name suggests–and fully finished songs from their Meteora era. The title was previously only available in a deluxe edition box set of that album, but for Record Store Day, the rockers released it on vinyl, and their legion of fans rushed to support the band once again.

Lost Demos sold 8,500 copies in the past tracking frame, according to Luminate. That sum seems to be largely–if not entirely–made up of vinyl purchases, as it was only recently made available on the newly-popular format.

The set arrives on the Billboard 200, the weekly ranking of the most-consumed albums and EPs in the U.S., but only just barely. Lost Demos opens at No. 191 on the 200-spot tally, giving Linkin Park their sixteenth hit on the important chart.

The new offering also reaches both the Top Album Sales and Vinyl Albums charts. On the former, it sits at No. 26, also giving the band their sixteenth placement. Linkin Park earns the third-loftiest debut this time around, coming in behind Busta Rhymes and The Doors.

Linkin Park also debuts on a trio of rock-only Billboard charts this week as Lost Demos performs well upon its arrival. The special release opens at No. 10 on the Top Hard Rock Albums tally, No. 23 on the Top Alternative Albums list, and No. 43 on the all-encompassing Top Rock & Alternative Albums chart. The band is used to those lists, as they’re one of the most successful rock groups of the last quarter-century or so.
