Mumford & Sons On Pace to Have Biggest Sales Week of Year

Mumford

Indie group Mumford & Sons is set to have the biggest sales week of the year in the US according to Billboard. Their latest work, Babel, is set to move 600,000 copies, which would be the highest sales in a week since classic rockers AC/DC’s album Black Ice came out in 2008.

To put that in perspective, that’s 253,000 more copies than Justin Bieber’s album Believer managed for first week sales.

Frontman Marcus Mumford has also said that the album is not about his Christian faith. Be sure to check out UTG’s review of Babel here. Do you think the album deserves these kind of sales? Let us know in the comments.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
