The record is Blink’s first since 2011’s Neighborhoods and first without founding member Tom DeLonge, who was recently replaced by Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. It debuted July 1 and sold 186,000 equivalent album units the week ending with July 7.
Drake’s Views spent nine weeks at No. 1 — the longest run for a male artist since Usher’s Confessions topped the chart for nine weeks in 2004 — before California took over. This marks Blink-182’s second No. 1 album, the first being 2001’s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, which included songs like “First Date” and “The Rock Show.”
