Alt-J is following its first number one album in the U.K. with its first visit to the top ten here in the U.S.
Billboard says the British indie-rockers' sophomore effort This Is All Yours debuted at number four on the new Billboard 200 after selling 68,000 copies last week. The album also bowed at number one on the Top Rock Albums tally, and easily gave the group their best sales week yet. In comparison the band's acclaimed debut An Awesome Wave moved 6,000 copies in a single frame at its peak.

Congrats to Alt-J!
