Faith No More's Sol Invictus, the Bay Area band's first new album in eighteen years, sold roughly 31,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, enough to land at #14 on the Billboard 200 chart. Meanwhile, the record debuted at #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, and #6 in the UK .

"What this tells me," said Faith No More founder and bass player Bill Gould, "is that there is a need out there; people want to hear things that exist outside the mold. It makes me feel grateful and it gives me hope."

"We are honored to be a part of the FNM team and very proud of the success of Sol Invictus," added Greg Werckman, co-owner of Ipecac Recordings. "Of course, none of this would have happened without the band delivering such a fantastic record and them having faith in us to handle it properly." The album was released as a joint partnership between the Faith No More's own Reclamation Recordings and Ipecac.

In the United States the album also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Hard Music and Independent Album charts as well as #2 on both the Rock and Alternative Album charts.
