Disturbed Aiming for Fourth No. 1 Album
Rock band Disturbed is on track to score its fourth No. 1 album atop the Billboard 200 chart next week with its new "Asylum" set.
Industry sources suggest that the effort could sell in the range of 130,000 to 150,000 copies by week's end on Sunday, Sept. 5. The act's last release, 2008's "Indestructible," arrived atop the list with 253,000 copies sold in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group previously reached No. 1 with 2005's "Ten Thousand Fists" and 2002's "Believe."
Katy Perry's current No. 1 album, "Teenage Dream," will likely fall from the penthouse, but is likely to remain in the top five.
Other albums looking for a high debut next week include the new "Now 35" compilation, Lyfe Jennings' "I Still Believe" and the Goo Goo Dolls' "Something for the Rest Of Us." The "Now" set could sell around 100,000 to 110,000, while Jennings and the Goos may sell about 30,000 to 50,000 each.
