Rock band Slipknot is on course for its second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters say the act’s new album, .5: The Gray Chapter, which was released on Oct. 21 through Roadrunner Records, could sell a little over 100,000 copies in the week ending Oct. 26. It's the group’s first studio release since 2008’s All Hope Is Gone, which debuted atop the list.
The new Billboard 200’s top 10 will be revealed on Oct. 29.
