Megadeth: 'Th1rt3en' To Sell 40K-45K First Week
According to Blabbermouth.net, Megadeth's new album, "Th1rt3en", is likely to sell between 40,000 and 45,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on November 1 via Roadrunner Records. Megadeth's previous CD, 2009's "EndGame", opened with 45,000 units to debut at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. This was slightly less than the 54,000 first-week tally registered by 2007's "United Abominations", which landed at No. 8. 2004's "The System Has Failed" premiered with 46,000 copies (No. 18) while 2001's "The World Needs A Hero" moved 61,000 units in its first week (No. 16). "Th1rt3en" was recorded at Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine's Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos, California with producer Johnny K (full name: John Karkazis), who has previously worked with Disturbed, Sevendust, Machine Head and Staind, among others. The artwork was once again created by artist John Lorenzi, who worked on the last two Megadeth studio albums, 2007's "United Abominations" and 2009's "EndGame", as well as the band's 2007 box set, "Warchest". "Th1rt3en" marks the recorded return of bassist David Ellefson who was part of the band's classic lineup from 1983 to 2002. In a move that delighted the band's legion of diehards, Ellefson returned to performing live with Megadeth in early 2010 and has remained a fixture on the stage ever since. This is the first time Ellefson has played on a Megadeth record since 2002's "Rude Awakening". Megadeth filmed the "Public Enemy No. 1" video on September 17 in Santa Clarita, California. The clip was shot on a movie set where old Westerns are filmed. CD track listing: 01. Sudden Death 02. Public Enemy No. 1 03. Whose Life (Is It Anyways?) 04. We The People 05. Guns, Drugs & Money 06.
