Brand New predicted to land first No. 1 album with 'Science Fiction'

Those in the know suggest that the group's new effort, Science Fiction, could earn perhaps 55,000 equivalent album units in the week ending August 24.

If the prediction holds true, Science Fiction will give Brand New their first-ever number-one album. The album - which was surprise released on August 18 via the band's own Procrastinate! Music Traitors label - is the act's first release in almost eight years. According to industry forecasters, the record will likely secure the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart with a potential 55,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Billboard has reported that it's bound for a No. 1 album ranking on the Billboard 200 chart.

Not only would it be the band's first No. 1 album-but it would be the first independently distributed album to hit No. 1 this year, too. The group returned in 2006 with The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me (No. 31) and then in 2009 with its previous studio set, Daisy (No. 6).

Science Fiction would also be just the third rock album to debut at number one in 2017, following Linkin Park's One More Light and Arcade Fire's Everything Now.
