Modest Mouse Debut At Number One

|

Mm

Modest Mouse‘s latest is the third entry in ’07′s indie rock hat trick. We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank debuted at number one, selling 129,000 records in the first week. The band joined their indie brethren the Shins (whose lead singer James Mercer appears on We Were Dead…) and the Arcade Fire, who also debuted albums in one of the top two slots on the Billboard charts.

Hopefully, the record breaking sales will help to cheer frontman Isaac Brock up.
