Mumford & Sons Tie The Beatles for Most Hot 100 Hits in a Week

It’s hard to believe Mumford & Sons’ October could get any better. Their newest album, Babel, sold 600,000 copies in its first seven days, besting all other major artist releases this year, and they’re tying long-standing records as well.

The quartet is now in a league with The Beatles as the band with the most Hot 100 hits in a week. Lead single “I Will Wait” moves up to No. 57, and joining it are the debuts of five others including the title track (No. 60), “Lover’s Eyes” (No. 85), “Whispers in the Dark” (No. 86), “Holland Road” (No. 92) and “Ghosts That We Knew” (No. 94).

Mumford & Sons is currently on tour overseas promoting Babel. They will return to the U.S. Nov. 10 with a show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Calif.
