Slipknot Top The Billboard Charts With “.5: The Gray Chapter”


Slipknot‘s first album since 2008 , “.5: The Gray Chapter“, has again seen them top the billboard charts. The group are presently #1 with around 132,000 copies sold during the albums first week of sales. Those who attended the groups ‘Knotfest‘ festival this past weekend likely played a good role in the bands success as various tickets came with a digital copy of the album. Slipknot last topped the charts with their 2008 release, “All Hope Is Gone“, selling around 240,000 copies.

Don’t expect the band to hang on to the top spot however, industry projections have Taylor Swift‘s new album selling a whopping 1 million copies in its first week, thus ending the platinum artist drought.
