Suicide Silence has their worst first-week sales tally to date

Monday, March 06, 2017 1:21 PM PT


From a sales perspective, it looks as if Suicide Silence's dramatic sonic transformation hasn't exactly paid off. The group's new self-titled album, released on February 24, sold roughly 4,650 copies in its first week of release in the United States.

The showing marks a steep first-week decline compared the band's previous album, You Can't Stop Me (2014), which moved 15,000 copies in its first week. Similarly, Suicide Silence's 2011 effort, The Black Crown and its predecessor, Time To Bleed (2009), both sold 14,000 copies in their respective debut weeks. Even the band's debut LP, The Cleansing, fared significantly better, selling 7,250 copies in its first week.


UPDATE: The new album has debuted at No. 163 on the Billboard 200. You Can't Stop Me bowed at No. 16, while The Black Crown landed at No. 28.

I bet that "Pull My Finger: The Fart CD, 99 Tracks of Flatulent Fart Sound Effects" sold more copies first week.

Mitch is rolling in his grave... Way to drive a band straight into the ground... They should talk to FRONZ about business plans and networking... That's FRONZ at FONZAK.COM

Their debut was pretty decent. But I recorded their first demo. I was one the first ones to find them.
I still have the email:
"We love you LK. It is always a pleasure to be in your company and your beautiful studio"
I was the first to find them.

Look at all of these ex-Suicide Silence haters now praising Suicide Silence just because they've heard something more 'eclectic' from them. SMFH

Meanwhile, After the Burial sells 10k first week on Dig Deep. It's not the state of the industry. It's a shitty product.

This, BY MUTHAf*kIN FAR, is this worst album ever produced by a decent band. Mitch is turning in his grave or laughing insanely at the garbage this band put out. All involved shvould be ashamed of yourselves and resign from your positions. If anyone sees this tour, or any band associated with this crap, you should also be ashamed.

Those who pay your bills will not support this, I am truly sorry fellas and whomever let you think your "creative" or "artistic" trend would help your portfolio should fired. Suicide Silence was an artistic, influencial force prior to this laziness.
Good luck on tour.... blood sucking off festival attendance. You'll need it.

This band are sick. They have some quality breakdowns. 0:36 on Doris is pro

After listening to this album a lot I can confidently say its amazing. The first time I heard it I really didn't like it. But the over-produced, poppy choruses actually are really unique and strangely catchy. Lyrics are pretty good too. Actually has some substance for a change opposed to most modern bands.

Ha yes chad fjerstad, but not all is as it sees.

Their label projected some 50k first week.

That is, until noted prankster and musician Jared Dines got his hands on and advance coy.

He hemiliated the band on yt with a video that went viral and single handed ruined Sui Sil's chances of a

Moral of the story: one person can affect the sales dramaticly.

So an album from 2007 back when people actually still bought CDs sold better than an album from 2017 when everyone streams their music from Spotify? Wow who would have thought!

anonymous
3/7/2017 5:29:22 AM
50,000 records is unrealistic from a label... where did you hear that? ^^^^ Agree with chad, People are def buying less and less records... But honestly I would have expected similar numbers to the last one...

After the Burial sold over 10k on their 2016 record. I'm not buying the "nobody is buying music anymore" Suishiling happening.

yes music sales are down, but not down enough to explain away this major decline. They barely outsold the new Power Trip. Call it what you want but this is a flop...Nuclear Blast gave Suicide Silence over $80k for this record

No way in hell they paid Ross Robinson 80k for this. My band recorded with him in 2016 and paid a third of that and took twice as long.

"LAMBGOAT NEWS FAIL - The caveat being, no one is selling as many records as a few years ago, sales are down across the board."

This guy is an idiot. If that were the case, they would still be at the same spot on the Billboard because the fall in sales would be across the board. Suck it, nerd.

nobody said they paid Ross Robinson that much. That's how much the label paid the BAND for it.
