Hail to Avenged Sevenfold! The California rockers have topped the Billboard 200 album chart with their latest album, 'Hail to the King.'

The disc sold 159,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land at No. 1 on the album tally. It marks the band's second No. 1 disc, as 2010's 'Nightmare' also topped the chart with a similar 163,000 units moved in week one. A few days ago, A7X scored their first No. 1 on the UK album chart, as 'Hail to the King' led that tally, as well.

Last week, Avenged celebrated the release of 'Hail to the King' with a free show at the Hollywood Palladium. Loudwire was there to catch all the action. Check out our recap and photo gallery here.

In addition, A7X will embark on a headlining North American fall tour with Deftones and Ghost B.C. as support. See the full list of dates by clicking below:
