NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of October 6, 2017

Music is our religion.

Say a few pop prayers for our contenders this week, as they all compete for the top debut on next week’s Billboard 200. Here are the albums and singles you need to know:

NF – Perception (iTunes)
The Contemporary Christian hip-hop artist is poised to score his highest-charting album to date with his latest effort, as he looks to score his first crossover hit with “Let You Down”, impacting at CHR/Top 40 radio on Halloween. The album includes the song “10 Feet Down”, featuring PGTC favorite Ruelle, the only collaboration in the mix. Just how high will it go? Stay tuned.

AUGUST BURNS RED – Phantom Anthem (iTunes)
From Pennsylvania, this heavy metal quintet has gone as high as #9 on the Billboard 200 with their last two studio albums, both of them topping the Independent Albums chart. Like NF, they also have a Christian fanbase driving their sales numbers. It could rise above that #9 high mark, assuming streaming numbers are solid for it.

MARILYN MANSON – Heaven Upside Down (iTunes)
Manson and his group have been hitting the Billboard 200 for over 20 years now, and their tenth studio effort is likely to reach a top ten peak next week. Of course, they have two #1 albums to date, their last coming in 2003. Lead single “KILL4ME” is headed toward the top 20 on the Active Rock chart.
