Sleeping With Sirens Shooting for 60,000 First-Week Sales

Posted by - 06:34 PM on 06/05/13
Billboard is reporting that Sleeping With Sirens will sell around 60,000 units of Feel in its first week on the charts, which will be second to Queens of the Stone Age (projected 80K) for debut albums in the week ending June 9. That number should be good enough to land Sleeping With Sirens in the top three on the Billboard 200 (competing with Daft Punk for the No. 2 slot). This would be the highest sales week of the band's career and, impressively, Rise Records' highest-selling debut.

I'm going to boldly predict 18,500 first week.
wonder years did 19.5 so that's not bold whatsoever. i say 30-35.
It's going to sell upwards, if not over, 30,000.
totally expecting between 30 and 40k still - even if it's getting lukewarm reception here - I don't think some people realize how big this band is right now.
Yep. My guess is 33,500, Top 8.

Unless this report winds up being totally off, we are all idiots

Drewbie was the closest - and was still off by 33%.

Looks like scene music CAN be sold still. I'm not a SWS fan, but good for them and Rise - major accomplishment.

Because they're that big. Don't let the stupidity of people on this site make you think otherwise. Most people here have no idea how big these bands are because they cloud themselves with the fact that this kind of music is trashed here.

This will most likely hit 50K. Maybe a little more. Billboard doesn't understand subculture music and that most sales are on pre-orders and day one of release week, not spread throughout the week with a release like JT, etc. 50K though, that's still incredible. Congrats to Rise.

How did this band get so big? Kellin's got a good voice and they have some good songs, but for the most part they're a pretty typical scene band.

Well obviously. I more meant like, out of all the bands in this genre, why is this the one blowing up? (b/c they are not that good or unique, you see).

Good for Rise though.

If anything people should be happy. It's stuff like this that allows Rise to sign bands like The Early November, The Jealous Sound, Hot Water Music etc etc

I can't believe Jake Denning boldly stated the record would sell 18,500 copies. Their last ACOUSTIC EP sold 18,000 first week with little to no promotion and minimal lead time to its release. To suspect that their highly touted new album would sell 500 more is very funny to me. Jake has really let me down.

I guess living in a country where they wouldn't fill a venue half the size that the Queens can fogs my view. I still can't believe this band is near as popular as they are.
