It looks like this band is getting lucky and getting an almost unheard of late push from a Major. Smart thinking for the label, because this band is capable of selling quite a few records.

I think it's been a steady push instead of a late push. They started by building the band naturally through AP and other online markets --- then moved toward the mainstream.

So what's the deal with these remixes? Are they just going to be edited for radio or "improved" for radio? Not too mention, "Hero/Heroine" was already out awhile ago. Eh, I guess it worked for Gym Class Heroes, Plain White T's, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc...

is it just me, or has this album been remixed/redone since its initial release? i bought it the day it came out (and loved it), and now - if you go to iTunes and listen to the songs - they seem faster and different overall. Anyone know something I don't? Or it may just be my imagination...

How does that have absolutely anything to do with an "ego"?

It's from the band's own mouth.

Stop being a dick.

i was just thinking 'wow, their milestones get updated all the time' so i looked it up (if only to prove to myself that i didn't just imagine it) and it does seem like a lot, especially compared to other bands...but thats probably just because i despise this band. thats good for them though to get such a push from such a big site like this. regardless, i wish ap was still allowed to post soundscan numbers. i always enjoyed looking those over.
