Very proud of letlive. Great step up from a band that maybe sold 5000 records total before signing with Epitaph

I mean, there wasn't much build-up for the used's ep but... That is just disappointing. Anyone know how Fake History debuted? I mean 5000 is decent for letlive. but I pictured TBB might at least hit 8k.
And Jesus, LMTF tripled their debut's first week sales but even 6,000 seems low... Their Warped crowds have been huge; I guess that isnt a good indicator of how well a band can sell CDs.
Strange week, I think.

Proof that somewhere in the world there are 3,000 fat girls in My Chem t-shirts with anywhere between 4-16 bracelets on each wrist and a tumblr page dedicated to the twilight series.

I can't understand why anyone is into that band. I am assuming the 700 is made up almost entirely of sales in their local region. Seems like it might be time for them to give it up.

Used didn't promote the new EP at all. I couldn't even find it on iTunes to preview on the day it was released till later that night. It's no wonder they didn't sell shit.
