Phish’s Fuego Marks Group’s Highest Charting Album Since 1996
Phish’s twelfth studio album, Fuego, came in at number seven on the Billboard 200, marking the band’s highest charting album since 1996’s Billy Breathes. Moving 32,000 units in its first week, the album is Phish’s 32nd charting effort and it’s first top-10 since 1998’s Story of the Ghost, which peaked at No. 8.
As previously reported, Phish amped up their promotional cycle this time around with performances on Late Show with David Letterman as well as a scheduled slot on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon set for July 14. The band also made their Live on Letterman debut following the June 24 release of the new album.
