Opening week sales and consumption projections have emerged for Nickelback’s new “Feed The Machine.”

According to Hits Daily Double, the album is on track to sell 40-45,000 pure US copies this week. The figure will likely be the week’s third-best — only Lorde’s “Melodrama” (~68-73K) and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’s “The Nashville Sound” (~48-53K) are on track to sell more.

The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) will yield a consumption total of 42-47,000.

The sum will likely position “Feed The Machine” at #6 on the Billboard 200 consumption chart. “Melodrama” (~90-95K), 2 Chainz’ “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” (~73-78K), Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” (~73-78K), “The Nashville Sound” (~50-55k) and Drake’s “More Life” (~50-55K) are on track to post bigger consumption totals.

“Feed The Machine” is the follow-up to “No Fixed Address,” which sold 80,000 US copies in its first week.
