I was actually wondering if they were going to somewhat replicate the chart success of bone palace ballet, so I guess in this day and age, they did. Congrats!

Really? Taking Back Sunday only sold a few thousands more than this.

I think 18K is a pretty good number for them considering the poor market and the amount of time that has passed since BPB.

Didn't BPB do 60K or something crazy like that? I never know where to find that info. Wiki usually doesn't say.

39K and #5 on the billboard charts. Chiodos of course was at the top of the scene then. Although it's unfair to compare 2007 numbers to now.

Is it? There is still a huge market for this kind of music. SWS did around 60k last year. To me it just seems like for whatever reason, Chiodos just hasn't been able to maintain their popularity into the new decade.

The reason is the amount of time that passed between BPB and a new album with Craig at vocals imo. Devil killed DRUGS and Illuminaudio sales numbers though. So the 18K is still damn impressive in my book.

You are correct this type of music still has a market. But sales numbers for all music are down from 2007. That's why I said it is unfair to compare them.
