Portishead’s THIRD, the long-awaited follow up to their 1997 self-titled release, debuted at #7 on Billboard’s Top 200. This is their highest chart rank ever in the U.S. and their first week sales are equal to the debut week of PORTISHEAD (from September 1997) which debuted at #21.

After an 11- year hiatus, Portishead’s THIRD has been receiving rave reviews and has been hailed as an “unexpected yet totally impressive return” by Rolling Stone, and “Worth the wait” by Newsweek. The band made their only U.S. performance April 26 at the Coachella Valley Festival and recently recorded and released a live in-studio performance of seven new tracks on Current TV in the U.S. and UK, titled “Portishead in Portishead.”
