Big Debut on Billboard 200 with The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here From Alice in Chains
Alice in Chains is set to make a big splash on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. The band’s fifth studio album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, is expected to grab the #2 slot, with projected sales of around 60,000 copies. Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is expected to keep the #1 spot on the tally for the second week in a row.
If the predictions are true, this will be the band’s highest-charting album since their 1995 self-titled release, which debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 its first week out. The group’s previous album, 2009’s Black Gives Way to Blue, debuted and peaked at #5 on the tally with 126,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The new Billboard 200 chart’s top 10 will be released Wednesday.
