VAN HALEN: More ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’ First-Week Chart Positions Revealed

VAN HALEN‘s new album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, has registered the following first-week chart positions:

U.S.: #2
Canada: #3
Australia: #4
U.K.: #6
Netherlands: #12
New Zealand: #14
Ireland: #16

“A Different Kind Of Truth” sold 187,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

The CD is the band’s first full-length offering with original singer David Lee Roth since “1984” was released in January 1984.

Roth exited the group in 1985, a year after its “1984” album was released. According to Billboard.com, “1984” spent five weeks at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 — VAN HALEN‘s highest charting set with Roth. (1996’s “Best Of Volume 1” hits album, which included two new songs with Roth, debuted at No. 1 with 233,000 sold in its first week.)

VAN HALEN‘s other four other No. 1s were their four studio albums with Roth‘s replacement, Sammy Hagar: “5150” (1986), “OU812” (1988), “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” (1991) and “Balance” (1995).

VAN HALEN‘s last all-new album, 1998’s “Van Halen III”, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart and was certified gold for sales of 500,000 copies, a disappointment compared to their previous platinum efforts.
