The Acacia Strain album sales and Soundscan

Gravebloom, the new album from Massachusetts metal/hardcore act The Acacia Strain has debuted at No. 146 on the Billboard 200 chart, with first weeks sales of roughly 5,100 in the United States and Canada. Meanwhile, the release landed at No. 37 on Top Album Sales chart and No. 4 on the Independent Albums chart.

The tally represents a significant drop compared to the band's previous album, Coma Witch, which sold 9,400 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 31 on the aforementioned chart (prior to said chart's recalibration).

The Acacia Strain's 2012 full-length, Death Is The Only Mortal bowed at No. 51 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 8,600.

Going back further, Wormwood (2010) sold 6,400 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 67.

Finally, The Acacia Strain first appeared on the Billboard 200 in 2008 when their Continent album landed at No. 107 with first-week sales of 5,500.

Remember the norma jean "worst first week ever post which was quickly deleted. Pretty hard to believe 5000 people went to the store to buy this type of music in 2017.

Too many former band members, no DL, and constant touring in the same venues to the same people are the factors which killed TAS. It happens. See you at the call center.
