Avenged Sevenfold ’s sixth studio album, Hail to the King , is expected to make a big splash on the Billboard 200 album chart next week. 

According to the industry website Hits Daily Double , first-week sales for Hail to the King are projected to be somewhere between 170,000 to 180,000 copies. If the predictions are true, the album’s first week sales will best the debut of A7X's previous release, 2010’s Nightmare , which sold 162,500 copies its first week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be released on Wednesday.

In other Avenged Sevenfold news, the group will hit the road to promote Hail to the King with a fall headlining tour, which kicks off on October 3 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL. Deftones and Ghost B.C. will support the band on all dates. Visit AvengedSevenfold.com for the full itinerary.
