Mediocre? It went platinum..

but how much did virgin pay to have mtv constantly play their videos and
the only single that did well was face down. The other two videos did nothing for
their record sales. Even though they did well for their debut, they
couldn't even sell out the electric factory here which bands like Brand New can do
even without ever going platinum.

yeah virgin pumped a lot of money into marketing them and their album sales were mediocre.
Mediocre, no. But given that they cut money from other bands, it should have gone platinum months ago.

didn't they go gold? if so, that's pretty respectable for a debut album

if not, totally ignore my post
They did, but when you market the hell out of the band, gold won't cut it.

The album has sold 1,112,182 copies in the US certifying it as Platinum.
RIAA certification is units shipped minus returns. If it's not certified platinum yet, that means the returns have dropped the numbers below one million.

Their new song is #1 on AOL alternative.

yes, but only thanks to massive marketing dollars on virgin's part. a couple of years from now nobody will remember that song, just that "face down" song...

Didn't their profile get hacked? Perhaps someone fucked with their page, as well as sending out those shitty bulletins. Perhaps not, who knows.

I'll sign them. Then I'll market the hell out of them with pop-up viruses. For free.

I'll make millions! :-P

As of a couple of months ago it had scanned a little north of 811k which is not quite plantinum but definitely a lot more than "mediocre"

from wikipedia...

2006 Don't You Fake It #25 U.S. Platinum 1,112,182

i dunno if that's correct though.

Did Virgin drop them, or did they decide to leave?

i think they had a few singles that got airtime and video play and whatnot. there was "Face Down" and "False Pretense".

personally, i liked their last album.. looks like i'm one of the few who felt that way. that was one of my big albums last summer. interesting that they're not with virgin anymore. hope its for the best for them,

Wow that's kind of surprising because I thought they were doing fairly well with the mainstream audience.

their album was pretty good

but virgin is a huge label and they can get huge bands so
they can really dispose of bands at their will and nothing will really affect them
