anyone know off the top of their head what The Upsides sold?
It was almost 2,000 in the first week - that record hit 10K not very long ago so 8K of this in a week is amazing for them!

I honestly never knew there was a Billboard Vinyl chart but that's pretty awesome. So do the vinyl sales also count towards total album sales?

I once had a conversation with the main songwriter of a very successful band....they sold multiple millions of records in their career....and he told me his opinion that if TWY made The Upsides 10 or so years ago it would have sold a million copies.

The vinyl top spot impresses me just as much as the No. 65 spot. Excellent work by the band, Hopeless Records and Mike at Earshot Media.
Mike really did do an outstanding job getting this album out there. But, I wouldn't expect anything less from him.

Yeah.

Had that album came out in the Drive-Thru era, they would have exploded.
