Judging by the massive crowd that was there for them at Warped last week in STL, I'm not even surprised.

Nice!

I've loved their previous full-lengths, but haven't gotten a chance to listen to this yet.

26K, pretty good. Better than FIR, who are only at 37 TOTAL since their release. Pretty crazy

I kind of have an anger that builds within me when heavy bands like We Came as Romans, As I Lay Dying, August Burns Red, Devil Wears Prada, etc

debut HIGHER than THRICE ever did.

uuugggghhhhh

Congrats to them though! haha

This is great news for the band. I remember they were blowing up for awhile with To Plant A Seed plus their constant touring, but I thought they kind of fell off the map with UWWGTB...guess I was mistaken. Haven't checked the new album out but I heard one song and thought it was better than anything off the last album.

metalcore is huger than ever right now. I feel like every few weeks a different metalcore band that has been somewhat popular over the last 5 years cracks the top 20

Many successful pop acts can't even sell that much opening week, let alone a niche metalcore band. I think they've sold about 100,000 of their first record total, though.
