This is absolutely shocking to me, since Bone Palace Ballet debuted in the Top 5 I believe in 2007 with like 35k sold. Could it be related to the departure of Craig?
Entirely due to that. I mean when you look at the tours they've been on, bands like Blessthefall and Bullet For My Valentine were headlining over them at smaller venues than Chiodos used to sell out on their own. Craig was everything to many of the fans, especially the more casual ones. As well, there was pretty much a 6 month period from when Craig was kicked out that the band did not have a single fan interaction - no blogs, tweets, shows (obviously), updates. They seemed not to care and its plausible the fanbase got disinterested and moved on. A shame too, because Illuminaudio is a great album.
