Solid sales and an excellent placement! Not many bands hit the top 3...

By the way, in case anyone cares, American Slang has sold around 97000 copies to date.

why? I didn't even know who Passion Pit were. TGA has had some buzz around them since The '59 Sound.

great for them, and completely deserving.

Well deserved. Picked it up the night before release and it hasn't left my car CD player.

Good for them! It's sad that 37,000 copies is considered a relatively big number these days though.

That's awesome! I'm enjoying the album a lot.

Also, it's so crazy that Adele's 21 is STILL in the top 10.

just to let people know: these ARE NOT official numbers. the Billboard charts haven't been published yet. this is an estimative by HITS Daily Double.

Passion Pit could debut higher than TGA for all we know. HDD has made some terrible mistakes in the past.

I would love to see the guys at staff using the official numbers straight from Soundscan. It's not hard to find them, especially for a top 3 debut.

congrats, that;s great news for the band. But jeez 38,000 takes #3 and #1 not even 50,000 , that's horrible.

Awesome news. I'm pretty sure this album has converted me into the Gaslight camp...just couldn't get into them in the past. This album may be my AOTY.

I'm shocked at how few copies they sold. That's weak.

me too. I know brand new sold more in 2009 with about 50,000. I only reference them because to me they're close to the same level, or atleast I thought so. Brand new can do small arenas

Only 40,000 at #3? That makes me sad. But congratulations to them nonetheless.
