The Decemberists have scored their first-ever no. 1 after their new album, The King Is Dead, entered the Billboard chart in the top position.

The album scanned 93,567 units in the U.S. in its debut week, landing it at the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart, and has also given the band their highest career chart position in territories all over the world. The King Is Dead was released on Rough Trade Records in the UK and Europe.

The Decemberists played the last of their 3 sold-out shows at New York's Beacon Theatre last night and will hit other major markets in North America before heading across the pond in March.
