Neck Deep’s new album, The Peace And The Panic, is clearly a massive one for the band—and the charts are proving it, too.

The band landed in the top 10 with their third album, hitting No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, Billboard reports.

The band earned 32,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 24, and of that, 29,000 were from traditional album sales. 

The current AP cover stars’ last album, Life’s Not Out To Get You, reached No. 17 on the Billboard charts. Plus, The Peace And The Panic also happens to be the highest charting effort for Hopeless Records in two years.

Of course, it was a great week for the alternative music community as a whole: Brand New’s Science Fiction landed No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, the band's first No. 1 album ever.

In issue 351, we caught up with frontman Ben Barlow to talk more about the story behind the new record and how it differs from their 2015 release Life's Not Out To Get You.

“When we were writing Life’s Not Out To Get You, we were going through a period of uninterrupted happiness. We were super-content, but as that album came out, life changed for us,” Barlow says. “Over the two years we’ve toured that record, so much has happened that I’ve re-evaluated what life is about and questioned whether just having a positive outlook is enough.”

Not to mention, the AP cover stars open up about their climb, their struggles and their haters in their most in-depth story to date. We even have and exclusive track-by-track where Ben Barlow takes us through every song on The Peace And The Panic. Pick up the new issue below!
