I feel like it has been impossible to predict first week sales this year... Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy for HLH and Secrets, but I figured they'd both only sell around 4k.
Seriously though, how did Hands outsell LMTF (who are basically on main stage all Warped this summer) or letlive. even.... A band as big as FIR should have sold more than 19k their first week too, no matter how polarizing the single/cd was to their fans. I could go on and on- SWS and Attila over performed, ETF underperformed, and, despite the leak, BMTH should've been able to move more than 35k. I'm just confused is all.

Hard to believe that SWS sold more than double WCAR in their debut weeks.

Congratulations to We Came as Romans for debuting in the top 10 even though I prefer their first two albums.

I'm still gonna have to say the Golden Ticket has a lot to do with the massive sales. Great marketing none the less, but even more of their fanbase didn't care for the album.

This band is huge. The "Golden ticket" didn't sell 100,000 albums.
