As the band’s new album “Father Of The Bride” debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200, Vampire Weekend itself makes a major splash on the Billboard Artist 100.

The band debuts at #1 on the chart, which ranks the top artists in America based on factors like song consumption, album sales and social media activity.

Vampire Weekend takes over the top spot from P!nk, who ruled last week’s chart in conjunction with the release of her chart-topping album “Hurts 2B Human.”

As noted, Vampire Weekend’s “Father Of The Bride” starts at #1 on the overall Billboard 200 album consumption chart. It also rules many other album listings, such as the Top Album Sales chart, the Vinyl Albums chart, and the Digital Albums chart.
