Chevelle‘s new album NIRATIAS has debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200, giving the band their fifth top-10 record.

NIRATIAS, an acronym for “Nothing Is Real and This Is a Simulation,” moved 28,000 equivalent album units in its first week, 24,000 of which were traditional album sales. Notably, it’s the first new album to debut in the Billboard 200’s top 10 in three weeks.

Chevelle peaked on the Billboard 200 at number three with 2014’s La Gárgola. They’ve also scored top-10 albums with 2004’s This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), 2009’s Sci-Fi Crimes and 2016’s The North Corridor.
