FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart with seventh studio album, “And Justice For None”. The set, which arrived last Friday (May 18), launched with 71,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 24, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 60,000 were in traditional album sales.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH previously landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart with “Got Your Six” (No. 2, 2015), “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell: Volume 2” (No. 2, 2013), “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell: Volume 1” (No. 2, 2013), “American Capitalist” (No. 3, 2011) and “War Is the Answer” (No. 7, 2009). According to Billboard, the group’s only studio album to miss the top 10 was its debut effort, “The Way Of The Fist”, which topped out at No. 107 in 2008.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH bassist Chris Kael told Iowa’s Rock 108 radio station that “And Justice For None” marks the first time that the band has had an album available on Spotify the first week of release. He said: “The other years, they didn’t count streaming towards physical sales and album sales. But now, they’ve gotten together and streaming actually counts towards album sales,” he said. “So this is the first time we’ve actually gone in guns blazing on every single platform — whether it be physical sales, your vinyl, all that stuff, streaming, Apple Music, everything. It’s all available now right out of the gate.”
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s sixth album, “Got Your Six”, sold 119,000 units in its first week of release.
The group’s first four albums all shifted at least 500,000 units.
