Rockers Fall Out Boy have scored their third US Number 1 album, the latest Billboard 200 chart reveals. The group’s sixth studio album American Beauty / American Psycho shifted 218,000 units across all formats during the week ending January 25th, according to figures given by Nielsen SoundScan.

The new record knocked Meghan Trainor’s debut Title, which sold 86,000, down to Number 3, and fended off non-mover Taylor Swift at Number 2 with 119,000 units. It marks the first time since 2010 that a January sales month, typically a quiet time for major releases, has seen two albums debut at the top with sales of over 150,000.

The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World Album Review


Deliberately not playing up to their name or any obvious marketing tie-ins, The Decemberists chose to release their last single, and album precursor, 'Make You Better' in November last year and this, their new album, in January. But then Portland's finest proponents of articulate, intellectual and evermore interesting indie folk-pop have probably always been trying to avoid the obvious with good cause.

The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World Album Review

On this, the band's seventh studio album, The Decemberists have lost none of their quirky individualistic and enigmatic charm. They may have ditched any notion of a particular concept for the album (other than not to have one) but they have lost none of their ability to superbly craft and deliver a poignant well told song.

Following on from the hugely successful album of 2011 'The King Is Dead', 'What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World' comes packed with some fabulously Decemberists styled stories brilliantly and beautifully played out as ever. As well as the peculiarities and idiosyncrasies that the band are loved and lauded for there are a few more besides, giving rise to a very startling album.

The Decemberists - A Beginning Song (Lyric Video)


Ahead of the release of their seventh studio album 'What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World' out January 20th 2015 through Capitol Records, The Decemberists unleash a lyric video for their new track 'A Beginning Song'.

The Decemberists - Make You Better


The Decemberists take a trip back to 1977 with the video for their fantastic new single Make You Better. The video for the track features Nick Offerman as the host of a German TV show who's sporting a fetching turtleneck which is true to the 70's fashion. The Decemberists are set to release their seventh studio album What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World in January 2015. The band are set to play dates throughout the US and Europe from February next year. 

The Decemberists, We All Raise Our Voices to the Air (Live Songs 04.11-08.11) Album Review


The Decemberists' crowning achievement to date The King Is Dead featured on many end of year lists for 2011. Now the Portland band is underlining the importance of that record with a live 20 song double album culled from the final 5 shows of their subsequent tour. It treads a fine line between satisfying fans, while also serving as an introduction to The Decemberists' 6 album back catalogue.
