So I know that Motörhead have done good in sales in the US I'd probably never say great, this is great news.
MOTÖRHEAD's 21st studio album, "Aftershock", sold 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart.
MOTÖRHEAD's previous CD, 2011's "The Wörld Is Yours", opened with 7,000 units to enter the chart at No. 94. The band's 2008 effort, "Motörizer", premiered with 6,400 copies to debut at No. 82, while 2006's "Kiss Of Death" registered a first-week tally of 3,500.
As previously reported, "Aftershock" has registered the following first-week chart positions:
The Netherlands: #64
I haven't searched but would this be the highest Motörhead has debuted in US? I know it's the highest in recent memory I would assume. Either way kickass for the band.
