Papa Roach is back on familiar ground: the upper reaches of the Billboard album charts, thanks to the big debut of "Getting Away With Murder," the band's new Geffen release. The CD, which premiered at #17 on The Billboard 200 chart, sold in excess of 50,000 copies in its first week.
The CD's release comes on the heels of the hit title track, which was #1 most added at Active Rock radio and #2 at Alternative radio. The achievement is all the more impressive is that the track was already in the Top-20 at Active Rock before the official radio add date.
