Dropkick Murphys Score Third Straight Top Ten Album in U.S.

by VVN Music

Celtic punk is not a genre that you see often toward the top of the charts, but it is this week as the Dropkick Murphys put their new 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory at number 8.

For the group, this is their third straight top ten and fourth top twenty album in a row in the U.S. with The Meanest of Times (2007 / #20), Going Out in Style (2011 / #6) and Signed and Sealed in Blood (2013 / #9).

The album is also having an impressive run on other charts, sitting at the top of the Independent, Tastemaker, Rock and Alternative Album tallies.

The only other new album by a veteran artist on this week's Billboard 200 is David Bowie's EP No Plan which starts at 138. Sales of the last of Bowie's tracks he finished before his death were, most likely, adversely affected by their inclusion on the Lucifer original cast album.
