Grammy-winning gothic rock band Evanescence topped the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday with their latest self-titled album, “Evanescence.”

The latest album sold 127,000 copies in its first week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan, sending the band straight to the number 1 spot for the second time in their career.

“What You Want”, the lead single off “Evanescence,” climbed the Rock Songs airplay chart this week from 15 to 13, Billboard said.

Evanescence previously debuted at the top spot with their 2006 album “The Open Door,” which sold 447,000 copies in its first week.

Evanescence knocked “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery‘s debut album “Clear As Day” from the top spot to the number 4 position.
