Yellowcard Debuts at #10

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (08/22/12)
Yellowcard's new album, Southern Air, debuts on the Billboard chart this week at #10 with 23,000 copies sold.
From the ArticleAs for the rest of the top 10 this week, Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" drops 6-9 with 25,000 (down 20%) and Yellowcard's new "Southern Air" debuts at No. 10 with 23,000. For the latter, it is the highest charting set for the band since 2006's "Lights and Sounds" debuted and peaked at No. 5. The group then notched a No. 13 hit with "Paper Walls" (2007) and a No. 19 peak with "When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes" (2011).

Good job Yellowcard. I was crossing my fingers for a higher charting position since this is your best album. Hopefully more people pick it up when they realize how great it is. Put Telescope on the radio and this thing will fly off the shelves.

I am fairly sure that Paper Walls had near 40K on its debut (without breaking the top 10,) if that tells you anything about how much the record industry is hurting in record sales. Glad they are in the top 10, at least 3 of the top 10 shouldn't be in the top 10, #1 being one of them. Awful album. ICP, faith for humanity is dead..

Still pretty stellar if you think about where Yellowcard was in 2008. Very rare for a band to get dropped from a major label, resigned with an indie label and make the top 10 on a debut. If the SA tour and single releases are good, their next album could rank even higher. I'm thinking "Telescope" will be a huge hit, and "Sleep in the Snow" as a winter release. Amazing turn around.

I'm happy that this went top 10. They were predicted to debut lower...

Solid album...

I don't think it lived up to the AP.net staff hype, but i enjoy it nonetheless.

Glad to see them on the charts again.

Exactly, and just think that it was #5...in today's sales that's a #1 debut.
