Iron Maiden land Top 5 US debut with The Book Of Souls

Iron Maiden have landed a Top 5 debut on the US album charts with “The Book Of Souls.”

Billboard reports the project opens at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 75,000 copies.

The tally scores the band’s best US sales week since Nielsen Music started tracking sales in 1991 and the showing equals Iron Maiden’s best chart ranking ever – matching the No. 4 placement of 2010’s “The Final Frontier.”

The veteran UK metal band’s 16th album will be supported by a world tour that will begin in the US next February.

“The Book Of Souls” was recorded in Paris in 2014 and produced by Kevin Shirley.
