Evanescence tops U.S. chart

Evanescence are back in a BIG way.

The band’s self-titled album – it’s first in five years – debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart after selling 127,000 copies in its first week.

It marks the band’s second consecutive #1 debut; the group’s last effort, "The Open Door," hit top spot in its first week with sales of 447,000 in 2006.

The project's first single, "What You Want," climbs the Billboard Rock Songs airplay list, moving from 15 to 13, while speeding to the #17 position on the Alternative Songs chart.

Evanescence are on tour now; this week, they play Dallas (Wed), Milwaukee (Fri), and Chicago on Saturday.
