HATEBREED‘s previous collection of new material, “Supremacy”, opened with around 27,000 copies back in September 2006 to land at No. 31.

HATEBREED‘s covers album, entitled “For The Lions”, sold around 10,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release back in May 2009 to debut at position No. 58 on The Billboard 200 chart.
