AFI Debuts at Number 5 in the U.S.

by VVN Music

AFI have tied the second best chart showing of their career with a number 5 start for their new album, AFI (The Blood Album).

Previously, the band hit the top of the Billboard 200 in 2006 with Decemberunderground and, in 2003, they also hit 5 with Sing the Sorrow.

The album is also at the top of the Alternative and Hard Rock Albums charts.

AFI is the tenth studio album from the band.

Outside of the one debut, the rest of the veterans on the Albums chart have either stayed at the same position or moved up/down five to ten spots. Look for a little more action next week with the debuts of new albums from Bell Biv DeVoe, Kreator, Delbert McClinton and Mike Oldfield.
