Man. That Phoenix album tanked for a band that's considered a headliner.

Well it's certainly not good. They should at least be at 100k at this point.

Phoenix's sales numbers are a shame, saw them yesterday for the second and they once again killed it. Really sold me on the new album too, which I was kind of on the fence about.

OMAM looks like one of those Some Nights-style albums that keeps steadily picking up sales. Good for them.

I'll agree with the above, WOW did Phoenix tank.

Yeah Phoenix was definitely affected a lot by the early leak. People have had that album for a month, so the incentive isn't really as drastic to go out to the store to purchase it unfortunately. Just a fact of the music industry at this point that those kinds of super early leaks will ruin sales regardless of the album's quality.

50,000 isn't bad, really. Plus no big singles off the album. Makes sense to me.

For a band that's headling Coachella and Lolla? Yeaaaah, that's not good.

BMTH's sales have really come to a hault after that solid first week. Surprised to see Phoenix struggling to push albums too.
