Mumford and Sons, whose sophomore album Babel scored the number one spot on the Billboard 200 in its debut week, have tied a record set by the Beatles for the most singles by a band to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 at a time.
This week the band has six singles from the new album that have made the chart: "I Will Wait" (number 57), "Babel" (60), "Lover's Eyes" (85), "Whispers in the Dark" (86), "Holland Road" (92) and "Ghosts That We Knew" (94). In 1964, the Fab Four accomplished the same feat.
The album has also been the quickest-selling album of 2012, moving 159,000 copies in its first week and topping the previous record holder Lana del Rey, whose Born to Die moved 117,000 units in its first week.
