Avenged Sevenfold’s “Waking The Fallen” broke into the Billboard 200 Top 10 this week debuting at #10. The boost is due to sales of the anniversary reissue, “Waking The Fallen: Resurrected,” moving approximately 22,000 units in its first week. Sales were projected between 20-25K.
“Waking The Fallen” didn’t previously chart on the Billboard 200. The sophomore title originally sold 3,000 copies in its first week of release, went Gold in 2009 and has sold 693,000 copies through Aug 31st.
