Rock band Evanescence returns to the Billboard 200 chart, scoring its second No. 1 album, as its self-titled third set bows with 127,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. The act, led by singer Amy Lee, last released an album in 2006, when “The Open Door” debuted at No. 1 with 447,000.
The new set’s first single, “What You Want,” rises 15-13 on the Rock Songs airplay chart this week, while also holding a bullet at No. 17 on the Alternative Songs tally. The group’s first album, 2003’s “Fallen,” spawned the Billboard Hot 100 hits “Bring Me To Life” (No. 5) and “My Immortal” (No. 7). SALUTE!
