Disturbed poised for No. 1 spot

Three times the charm

Disturbed called their new album Invincible, and how right they are: The band is poised to sell between 230,000 and 250,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release for a likely No. 1 debut on next week's Billboard 200 chart.

Disturbed's previous two albums, 2005's double-platinum Ten Thousand Fists (first-week sales: 238,000) and 2002's platinum Believe (first-week sales: 284,000), both debuted at No. 1. The band's best-selling release to date is its 2000 debut, The Sickness, which has moved 3.89 million copies in the US alone.
