MEGADETH’s new album, “Super Collider”, is likely to sell between 28,000 and 32,000 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 June 4 via MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine’s new label,Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). The disc follows up “TH1RT3EN”, which opened with 42,000 units back in November 2011 to land at position No. 11 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s 2009 CD, “Endgame”, premiered with 45,000 copies to debut at No. 9. This was slightly less than the 54,000 first-week tally registered by 2007’s “United Abominations”, which entered the chart 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).
The album is available as a limited-edition CD with 3-D cover and bonus tracks, regular CD, regular LP, limited LP plus a bonus colored seven-inch single with two bonus tracks, and a download voucher.
