Vampire Weekend ’s Modern Vampires of the City is headed for a big #1 debut on the Billboard 200 album chart, with projected sales putting it somewhere around 120,000 copies. 

If the predictions are true, this will be the band’s second #1 album on the list, following 2010's Contra . That album debuted in the top slot with 124,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be released on Wednesday.

Vampire Weekend is currently trekking across North America promoting Modern Vampires of the City. The band will also hit a number of festivals this summer including the Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, WA; the Firefly Festival in Dover, DE; Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL; and the Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, TX.  Visit VampireWeekend.com to view the full itinerary.‎
