EVANESCENCE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH ROCK THE ONE-DAYS
Will Adele Return to the Top Next Week?
Welcome back, Amy Lee. Where’ve ya been?

Evanescence, the band fronted by the sultry lead vocalist, returns to the charts next week with its self-titled third album—and first since 2006’s The Open Door—which is expected to do between 110-120k.

That will put it in a race with Adele for the top spot on next week’s chart, based on one-day sales reports from those retailers not participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest.

Prospect Park rockers Five Finger Death Punch’s third album, American Capitalist—not named after manager Jeff Kwatinetz, or maybe it is—will bow with between 85-90k in sales, which should be enough to make it Top Three on next week’s chart.

Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina should do between 60-65k for her debut album, Wildflower, an impressive total for the show’s second-place finisher.

PAX-AM/Capitol/EMI’s Ryan Adams is back with a new, critically acclaimed album, Ashes and Fire, which looks to be in the 45-50k range for first-week sales.

Republic Nashville country star Martina McBride’s Eleven, her first album for the label after moving over from RCA Nashville, should do between 35-40k.

Hollywood Records former teen heartthrob Joe Jonas’ debut solo album, Fastlife, appears headed for sales in the 24-27k range.

Notifi/Fontana R&B veteran Johnny Gill’s Still Winning, his first solo release since 1996’s Let’s Get the Mood Right, should do between 14-17k in first-week sales.

Album sales were down 8% vs. last week, up 5% vs. same week last year and up 3% year to date.

Track sales were up 1% vs. last week, up 5% vs. same week last year and up 11% year to date.

TEA (Track Equivalent Album) sales are down 5% vs. last week, up 5% vs. same week last year and up 5% year to date.

Anybody ready to Occupy the Charts?
