Firepower, the veteran band’s 18th album debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart in its first week. That announcement was just made Tuesday. That placement is the highest ever domestic placement for any of the band’s albums.

The band, in a collective statement, said that it is proud of Firepower‘s early showing.

“This is incredible news, that our band, Judas Priest, of nearly fifty years standing, can stay popular and relevant enough to gain our highest first week Billboard Top 200 chart position ever!,” the band said in the statement.  “Good news for us and good news for metal in general!”
