It seems Phoenix entertained plenty of people with their new album last week.  "Billboard" and Nielsen SoundScan say the French indie rockers' fifth studio effort, Bankrupt!, sold 50-thousand copies in its debut frame. 

Phoenix's new album, Bankrupt!, is available now.

That was enough to put the disc at number four on the Billboard 200 this week, which is the highest spot Phoenix have ever reached on the album tally.  It easily tops their previous best, which came in 2009 when their breakthrough album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix debuted and peaked at number 37. 

Phoenix talks about their new album with iHeartRadio:

Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy got both good news and bad news this week.  Their comeback record, Save Rock and Roll, was knocked from the number one spot by Michael Bublé's To Be Loved.  But unlike many other rock chart toppers, Fall Out Boy managed to stay in the top ten.  Despite dropping 76-percent in sales, Save Rock and Roll only slid to number five.
