Bastille is once again number one in the band’s home country.

The “Pompeii” outfit’s latest effort, Give Me the Future, has debuted at number one on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart. They’ve previously earned the honor twice, with 2013’s Bad Blood and 2016’s Wild World.

“We’re so happy and excited!” Bastille tells OfficialCharts.com. “Ridiculously grateful to everyone who’s bought the album and listened to it, and to everyone who worked so hard to make this record with us.”

“We’re mega proud of Give Me the Future and beyond overjoyed that it’s had such an amazing response so far,” the group adds. “Can’t wait to head out on tour soon and play these songs in real life for everyone.”

Give Me the Future, Bastille’s fourth album, was released last Friday. It includes the singles “Distorted Light Beam” and “No Bad Days.”
