Arctic Monkeys earn third top-10 "Billboard 200" debut with "Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino" 

DominoArctic Monkeys have earned another top-10 Billboard 200 debut with their new album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. The sixth studio effort from the British rockers arrives at number eight on the chart with a total of 47,000 equivalent album units, 37,000 of which were traditional album sales.

Tranquility Base is the third Arctic Monkeys album to debut in the top 10, following 2013's AM and 2007's Favorite Worst Nightmare.

Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino was much more popular in the band's native country, giving them their sixth straight number-one album on the U.K.'s Official Albums Chart. It was also the fastest-selling vinyl record in the U.K. in the last 25 years.

Arctic Monkeys will launch a European tour behind Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino later this week, and they'll return stateside for a U.S. run in June.
