A Day To Remember Can Still Move Units

Posted by: Jason Tate (12/04/13)
Soundscan has confirmed that A Day To Remember's Common Courtesy has sold 92,874 copies. A portion of the press-release is below.
Today Neilsen Soundscan verifies that the band sold 40,550 copies through their own digital direct to fan presale as well as 52,324 albums through traditional retail outlets such as Best Buy, iTunes and Hot Topic. In total, the new album has sold 92,874 copies in the US alone. The album will not debut on the Billboard chart this week due to the untraditional nature of this release but the band is very thankful for the overwhelming support and loyalty of their fans. Had Common Courtesy been eligible the band would have had a Top 10 debut this week.

They could've done around 60k-90k in the first week if they were still on Victory. Impressive numbers, though.

Good for them. Album is pretty solid, certainly not my favorite of theirs though.

I think it means they don't need a label.

40,550 sold via their direct-to-fan digital means, to me, that with proper rollout like, you know, actually releasing songs to the public before the release date, and marketing the record, this could have been over 100K in a normal first-week sales situation

Press ReleaseNEW YORK, NY (December 4, 2013) –A Day To Remember’s new album Common Courtesy is off to a monster start. As the band was involved in litigation with a record label for the past couple years, it was uncertain for some time when the band's new album Common Courtesy would see the light of day.

On October 4th, a federal judge ruled in an injunction hearing that the band could legally release the album. Since their fans had been waiting for new music, the band opted to pre-release their album as soon as they possibly could direct to fans on October 8th.

Today Neilsen Soundscan verifies that the band sold 40,550 copies through their own digital direct to fan presale as well as 52,324 albums through traditional retail outlets such as Best Buy, iTunes and Hot Topic. In total, the new album has sold 92,874 copies in the US alone. The album will not debut on the Billboard chart this week due to the untraditional nature of this release but the band is very thankful for the overwhelming support and loyalty of their fans. Had Common Courtesy been eligible the band would have had a Top 10 debut this week.

"This proves that the days of needing huge record contracts are over, and that all that really matters are the fans,” remarked lead singer Jeremy McKinnon. “Thank you for the support."

The band’s last album What Separates Me From You was a major breakthrough for A Day To Remember. Upon its release the album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and has now sold over 300,000 units. A Day To Remember’s entire catalog is now well over a million units combined.

The first single from Common Courtesy “Right Back At it Again” made its debut on the Billboard Modern Rock Charts this week at #40 as well.

Since their formation in 2003, Ocala, Florida’s A Day To Remember have grown from a small band with a dedicated local fan-base into a worldwide phenomenon, gaining the respect and adoration from their peers as much as their fans. This hasn’t been an overnight success story – A Day To Remember have worked hard to win over every fan they’ve made. Over the course of the bands career, the band has sold out entire continental tours, landed two Top 25 Billboard debuts and topped the Billboard Indie Albums Chart.
