    Default We Are Chaos - Sales & Performance

    Marilyn Manson (Loma Vista) 24-27k, 20-22k

    HUD's first week sold 32k pure copies and 35k total when factoring in streaming. The original predictions for that album were a bit lower than the final number, so I expect WAC to end out the debut week with around 25k pure copies and around 5k from equivalent streaming for a 30k finish, ending up just behind HUD's final debut numbers.

    Is that good? I don't know how modern album sales work.

    It's decent. HUD did 32k, TPE did 49k, and BV did 38k. So this isn't much of a decline and is in line with most rock bands sales numbers these days.

    I’m very to curious to see where it lands on the billboard chart. It’s been #1 on US iTunes all week.

    Having just had a look at the ARIA (Australian) charts, I was surprised to not see it anywhere, but also at how many of the entries I had never heard of the artist, and how many old (like, years to a decade) old albums there were in there.

    Still, it only went on sale last Thursday and the chart gets updated at the start of a week, so maybe it won't pop up until next week?

    When will we know the final stats for Billboard?

    I've got mood poisoning, it must be something that I hate.

    Yeah, odd timings messed with it for a week (I guess we are in the future), but good to see it actually hit number 1 in Australia, beating out big names like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. First #1 album here since MA too, which is cool.

    "Rock band Marilyn Manson scores its 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 as We Are Chaos bows at No. 8. The set, which was released via Loma Vista/Concord, enters with 31,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, 28,000 is from album sales (encouraged by a variety physical formats of the album on offer), 3,000 from SEA units (equaling 4 million in on-demand streams of the set’s tracks) and less than 1,000 from TEA units."

    Just under HUD, which is very good in this sales climate. The gap between actual sales and streaming is staggering, though, further proving that only rock fans buy albums these days.

    Yeah, that's actually very encouraging to see how far and above the physical sales were.
