    Drake’s Views is once again at the top of the Billboard charts. Dierks Bentley comes in at two, Beyoncé is at three. Thrice ended up selling about 22,000 copies in their first week, landing itself the #15 on the charts.

    Views earned another 152,000 equivalent album units (down 19 percent) in the week ending June 2, according to Nielsen Music. More than half of that sum, 92,000 units, were comprised of streaming equivalent albums.

    Issues debuted at 20, down from their debut - odd. Saison debuted at 45

    It's always crazy to me when you see bands who can fill 1500-2000 cap venues in most any city in the country (Thrice and Saosin among them) and yet they can barely scratch 20,000 first week sales.

    This just shows how boring Issues new album is compared to their debut.

    I think charted at 42 and ~4,500? That's all I could find. If so that's pretty bad

    Didn't there last one do like 12.5k if so that's quite a drop.

    I do enjoy their new album but I agree their debut is better.
