The Arcade Fire Sold 156,000 Copies Of The Suburbs, According To… Spoon


The Arcade Fire will “probably, and most assuredly definitely” have the #1 album in the country this week, according to the L.A. Times, which attributes the 156,000-copies figure to Merge labelmates Spoon, who of course helped AF burn down Madison Square Garden last week. Should this number, and this chart position (the band’s, and Merge’s, first #1 ever) hold, it will be frankly pretty shocking how not shocking it is. I say again: We did it, Internet!
