Deftones Headed For a Number 2 Debut in the U.S.; Zakk Wylde & Ben Harper to Top 20

The Deftones are looking to tie their highest chart debut next week as Gore is projected for a number 2 debut by Hits Daily Double.

The industry site shows the group selling an estimated 65,642 copies of the new album in its first week and, when streaming equivalents are added, it goes up to just over 68,000, good for second place behind the Lumineers on both tallies.

While there is no chance they will get to number 1 (the Lumineers have estimated sales of 105,500/122,800) they also shouldn't fall from 2 as their closest competition below is Chris Stapleton's Traveller (37,900/46,600).

The Deftones also hit number 2 in 2003 with their self-titled fourth studio album.

Zakk Wylde's Book of Shadows II also started strong with estimated sales of almost 19,600, putting it at number 5 in sales but it picked up less than 400 additional copies when streaming is added in, pushing it down to the mid-teens. Wylde's solo debut, Book of Shadows, went to 32 in 1996.

Falling just one position behind on both charts is Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminal's Call It What It Is with 19,000 in sales and 19,500 with sales plus streaming.

Farther down the chart, Filter is at 41 with Crazy Eyes, showing 5,000 in estimated sales in the first week. Streaming equivalent sales were not enough to keep the album in the top 50 on the Sales + Streaming chart.

Final numbers and chart positions will be out on Tuesday.
