Machine Head have scored a No 22 Billboard Top 200 chart debut for their new album, Unto The Locust, with over 17,000 albums scanned.

The new album debuts at #4 on the Hard Music chart and the Current Hard Music chart, as well as the top internet chart at #26.

The album came in at #19 on the overall digital albums chart with nearly 6,000 albums sold digitally, 35% of the overall scan.

Even more impressive, this is the third consecutive album to show at least a 20% increase in sales over the previous release; a virtually unprecedented feat for any band or artist, let alone a metal band in 2011.

To date, Machine Head has sold 2.4 million albums worldwide.

Unto The Locust is seeing amazing charting numbers overseas as well. The album charted at #5 on the German charts, #6 on the Austrian charts, #10 in Australia and Switzerland, #13 on the French charts, #18 on the Japanese charts, #19 on the New Zealand charts, #22 on the Belgian charts, #28 in Norway, and #82 on the United Kingdom charts (the album release in the United Kingdom was via the Metal Hammer fan pack, which does not counted towards UK chart numbers. The #82 chart number solely represents digital sales).
