Shinedown and David Gilmour Debut in “Billboard” 200 Top Ten

Credit: Darren DoaneShinedown's Threat to Survival and David Gilmour's Rattle That Lock have both earned top-10 debuts on the Billboard 200. Threat to Survival has debuted at number six on the chart with 65,000 units, 61,000 of which were pure album sales, while Rattle and Lock comes in at number five with 71,000 equivalent album units, 70,000 of which were pure album sales.

Threat to Survival, Shinedown's fifth album, is the band's third-straight album to chart in the Billboard 200 top ten, following 2012's Amaryllis, which debuted at number four, and 2008's The Sound of Madness, which debuted at number eight. "Cut the Cord," the lead single from Threat to Survival, earned Shinedown their ninth number-one song on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs chart.

Rattle That Lock, Gilmour's fist album in nine years, gives the ex-Pink Floyd guitarist his highest debut on the Billboard 200 as a solo artist. His previous chart peak was achieved by his last album, 2006's On an Island, which debuted at number six.

Other significant debuts on this week's Billboard 200 include Lana Del Rey's Honeymoon, which bows at number two on the chart, and singer-songwriter Ryan Adams' full-album cover of pop star Taylor Swift's 1989, which comes in at number seven.

Overall, this week's Billboard 200 saw seven new albums debut in the top ten of the chart, thanks to a very crowded September 18 release date. Albums by Chris Cornell, Metric, Robert DeLong and The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards were also released September 18 but didn't chart in the top 10.
