The Acacia Strain's new album, "Wormwood," released last Tuesday has charted at number 67 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart, with 6,466 units sold, according to Nielson Soundscan.
This is the highest debut, in both chart position and in number sold, in the band's five album, ten year plus career. The album is also ranked at number 66 on the Top Current Albums Chart and number 8 on the Hard Rock Chart.
Their previous release, 2008's "Continent," debuted at number 107 with approximately 5700 units sold. This also marks the second highest first week chart debut in Prosthetic Records' history.
"The Most Known Unknown," the band's first DVD debuted at #10 on Billboard's Top Music Video Sales Chart back in February.
Front man Vincent Bennett commented; "We couldn't be happier about the reaction 'Wormwood' has been getting. We didn't know how it would go over and so far the feedback has been awesome! We appreciate the support of our fans helping us to get the word out and be a part of this record. Thanks for the support!"
