New Nine Inch Nails & In This Moment Releases Hit The Billboard 200


Nine Inch Nails‘ surprise “Add Violence” EP and In This Moment‘s “Ritual” have both hit the charts. “Add Violence” is the second in a trilogy of EP’s to arrive from the band and was released with only a week or so of advance notice. Despite the lack of a traditional pre-release promotional cycle, it landed at #17 on the Billboard 200 with 24,000 units.

Also debuting on the Billboard 200 is In This Moment‘s latest effort, “Ritual“. That album shifted 22,000 units during its first week. This latest effort found Roadrunner Records stepping in alongside Atlantic to help with the promotion/release. Though a healthy number, the effort did fall notably short of the 36,175 the band’s previous album “Black Widow” opened with in 2014 however.
