    Pink as the number one album in the country this week:

    It launches with a larger-than-expected 408,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 19, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 384,000 were in traditional album sales — the best sales week of the year among all acts.

    For those curious, Knuckle Puck and The Front Bottoms both sold around 9,000 copies.

    yeah I was thinking these sales have gotta be a little disappointing for TFB right?

    These Pink sales are wild. I never hear about her and I frequent a lot of music places. I feel like it'll be forgotten about by next year

    they're currently transitioning management in the label so that could be part of it. guess we'll find out next year

    Those Knuckle Puck numbers seem a little low. I figured they might come in around 11-13k.

    I wonder if their hype has died down some (it seems like they had a ton of hype leading up to the album) or if the bad production was a factor in sales. Or am I just overestimating how well they should do?

    Front Bottoms album is up there as one of my faves of 2017. And KP haven’t missed a beat with this one Either, it’s more of the same but it sounds damn good still.

    Prob not honestly. She'll probably tour on it long and hard and I'm sure the singles will fair well. The people love Pink. It probably won't make a huge pop culture impact but I can see it selling steadily

    If I'm not mistaken, I think their last album didn't sell 9,000 copies, so I think that number is pretty decent. They are still a pretty young band and their shows seem to get bigger and bigger each time they go out in tour.


    So I just looked at the Wikipedia for Copacetic and it sold just over 8k, so this essentially did around the same. I guess you could say you would expect to see more, but I think this band is just getting started. Now if by the next album the sales are the same then they might be in trouble.

  14. I bet they have one more album in them before they break up ... no one cares about this band.

    I think they have a decent fan base. I guess looking at the numbers it isn't massive. It also doesn't seem to be expanding to the levels I expected for this album. Any chance you'd do a little deeper dive on this album on an upcoming podcast? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Decent stats for KP. Album is pretty great.
