Nine Inch Nails Climb to Number Three On the Billboard 200
After five years without an album Nine Inch Nails have wasted no time climbing back to the top of the Billboard 200 charts. Hesitation Marks, the band’s latest record and the first on a major label since 2007, reached the number three spot on the charts selling 107,000 in its first week. The album has sold more during its first week than the bands last two albums, the independently released The Slip and Ghosts I – IV (29,000 & 26,000), combined.
Hesitation Marks is Nine Inch Nails’ 14th album to make the charts and the sixth to crack the top ten. The band’s last album on a major record was 2007′s Year Zero which debuted at Number Two selling 187,000.
In other news the band has released a four-song live EP exclusively through Spotify. The EP includes the new song “Copy of A,” recorded in July at the 2013 Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, along with three tracks from NIN’s 2013 Lollapalooza set including the new songs “Came Back Haunted” and “Find My Way,” as well as the Pretty Hate Machine track “Sanctified.”
