The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 17 via Roadrunner THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA's fourth album, "Dead Throne", opened with 32,000 units back in September 2011 to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The album — executive-produced by KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, THE CHARIOT) — sees the group driving its relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to frontman Mike Hranica's grim, emotional lyricism.
