Black Sabbath’s “13” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart!

 

Great success for our guys - after 35 years since Tony and his bandmates Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler recorded an album together, there was no telling how the band’s new disc “13” would perform on the charts. But now the numbers are out and the album is a huge success, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with an impressive 155,000 copies sold in the United States during its first week out.

The album marks Black Sabbath’s first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard chart and remarkably it’s only the band’s second Top 10 entry (1971′s Master of Reality hit No. 8). Earlier in the week, “13” also topped the UK chart, making it the band’s first album to hit No. 1 on that tally since 1970′s Paranoid.

The first-week sales total in the U.S. for “13” more than triples the next entry on the chart.

Black Sabbath will embark on a full North American tour beginning July 25 in Houston and finishing up in Los Angeles on Sept. 3.

The band recently announced that there will probably be ANOTHER ALBUM after “13” and they hope for the drummer Bill Ward’s return!

All we can say now is – Amen! Hope this will be real! Rock on Sabbath! You are the best!
