Iron Maiden score US chart high with Senjutsu

Iron Maiden have scored the highest US chart placement of their career with “Senjutsu.”

According to Billboard, the iconic UK band landed the milestone with a No. 3 debut on the Billboard 200, beating their previous No. 4 entries with both 2010’s “The Final Frontier” and 2015’s “The Book Of Souls.”

“Senjutsu” sold 64,000 equivalent album units earned in its opening week, of which album sales comprised 61,000 (making it the top-selling album of the week), SEA units comprised 3,000 (equaling 3.57 million on-demand streams of the set’s 10 tracks) and TEA units comprised a negligible sum.

The record also earns the second-largest week of 2021 for a hard rock album in both equivalent album units earned and in traditional album sales, coming in behind the Foo Fighters’ “Medicine At Midnight”, which sold 70,000 units in its debut earlier this year.

Iron Maiden recorded “Senjutsu” in Paris with longstanding producer Kevin Shirley, with band founder and bassist Steve Harris co-producing.
