Linkin Park debut at top of UK album charts

Linkin Park have scored their third UK #1 as their new album, “Living Things,” debuts atop the British album charts.

The Official Charts Company reports the band’s sixth UK top 10 bumped Justin Bieber’s “Believe” out of the #1 position.

“Living Things” sold 41,000 copies, just 3,000 more than the new Maroon 5 disc, “Overexposed,” which landed at number 2.

The two bands are expected to fight for the #1 spot on the new Billboard 200 album chart; details will be released later this week.

Linkin Park kick off a North American tour on August 11 in Bristow, VA.
