Beartooth notches its second No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart, as The Surface debuts atop the Oct. 28-dated ranking.

The set bows with 17,000 equivalent album units earned in the Oct. 13-19 tracking week, according to Luminate. Of that sum, 12,000 are via album sales, with 7,000 on vinyl.

Beartooth previously ruled Top Hard Rock Albums in 2018 with Disease, which reigned for a week upon its debut that October. The Caleb Shomo-led band adds its fifth top 10 (and total entry), having also charted with Below (No. 2, July 2021), Aggressive (No. 3, 2016) and Disgusting (No. 6, 2014).

Concurrently, The Surface debuts at No. 9 on Top Rock & Alternative Albums, marking Beartooth’s fourth top 10, dating to the No. 4 debut and peak of Aggressive in June 2016. It also starts at No. 5 on the all-genre Top Album Sales chart, where it’s the band’s second top 10.

The release of The Surface was preceded by a pair of radio singles. “Riptide” peaked at No. 11 on the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart in January, while follow-up “Might Love Myself” lifts 6-5 on the latest list. The latter becomes Beartooth’s first top five hit on Mainstream Rock Airplay among three top 10s, surpassing the No. 6-peaking “Hated” in 2017.

“Might Love Myself” also jumps 22-18 on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart with 1.8 million audience impressions, up 12%.

Five songs from The Surface rank on the Oct. 28-dated, multi-metric Hot Hard Rock Songs survey, paced by “Might Love Myself” at No. 9. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 721,000 official U.S. streams. It’s followed by a debut for “I Was Alive” at No. 11 (779,000 streams).
