A Day To Remember Sell Almost 100K Albums Without Label

A Day To Remember have sold almost 100,000 copies of their new album "Common Courtesy" without the help of a record label after fighting a legal battle with their former label. Their camp sent out these details:

On October 4th, a federal judge ruled in an injunction hearing that the band could legally release the album. Since their fans had been waiting for new music, the band opted to pre-release their album as soon as they possibly could direct to fans on October 8th.

Neilsen Soundscan verifies that the band sold 40,550 copies through their own digital direct to fan presale as well as 52,324 albums through traditional retail outlets such as Best Buy, iTunes and Hot Topic. In total, the new album has sold 92,874 copies in the US alone.

The album will not debut on the Billboard chart this week due to the untraditional nature of this release but the band is very thankful for the overwhelming support and loyalty of their fans. Had Common Courtesy been eligible the band would have had a Top 10 debut this week.

"This proves that the days of needing huge record contracts are over, and that all that really matters are the fans," remarked lead singer Jeremy McKinnon. "Thank you for the support."
