MACHINE HEAD has just completed a North American headlining with support from SUICIDE SILENCE and DARKEST HOUR.
MACHINE HEAD’s new album, “Unto The Locust”, sold more than 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart — putting MACHINE HEAD in the Top 25 for the first time in the band’s 17-year history.
MACHINE HEAD has consistently averaged more than 100,000 copies sold in the U.S. for each of its seven albums and has shifted double that overseas (accruing several silver records in the U.K.), resulting in cumulative worldwide sales of more than 2.4 million.
MACHINE HEAD’s previous CD, “The Blackening”, opened with just under 15,000 units back in April 2007 to debut at No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s 2004 effort, “Through The Ashes Of Empires”, premiered with less than 12,000 copies to land at No. 88.
