Darkest Hour's new self-titled album has debuted at #94 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of roughly 3,200 in the United States. This marks the band's highest ever debut on the aforementioned chart.

Guitarist Michael Schleibaum comments: "We couldn't be more excited right now. To reach the highest charting point yet at this point in our careers is a really great feeling. This album is unlike any we've done before and we couldn't be more proud of it. Mega thanks to all the people at Sumerian Records and Outerloop management for their hard work and dedication to the cause. If you don't have the album yet, pick it up now.

Prior to the new album, Darkest Hour's best chart showing was their 2009 album, The Eternal Return, which peaked at #104 on the strength of 4,700 copies sold. Meanwhile, their previous release, The Human Romance, sold 3,600 copies in its first week, debuting at #185 on the Billboard 200.
