Iron Maiden's The Final Frontier on the Way to No. 3 on Billboard Chart

The Final Frontier, Iron Maiden's latest release, is estimated to sell between 65,000 and 75,000 copies during its first week of release in the U.S. alone. The estimate, which was projected by industry website Hits Daily Double, was based on the one-day sales report compiled after the album hit record store shelves on August 17. In fact, the numbers are so high that the veteran British metallers will secure the No. 3 position on next week's Billboard 200 chart.

The Final Frontier is Iron Maiden's 15th studio album. In the U.K., the album has already sold 22,000 copies this week alone, meaning the band is on its way to a No. 1 chart position in their home country. Also, The Final Frontier has sold three times as many copies as Eminem's Recovery - an album which sits just slightly ahead of Maiden's release on the Billboard chart. (Read More)
