More Chart Positions are in from around the globe and they are impressive to say the least. Machine Head's latest album CATHARSIS debuted #1 on the North American Hard Music Charts, #5 on the Rock Album Charts, and #17 in North America sales-equivalent Top Current Charts besting "Bloodstone & Diamonds", "Unto The Locust" and "The Blackening" on the physical-sales-ranked chart, and marking their first US Top 20 charting in history. It charted at #65 on the consumption-based (streaming) Top 200 charts.
CATHARSIS also reached new highs on the Canadian Hardcharts debuting at #1, and #10 on the Top Current Canadian Charts which also bests our previous high chart position of #25 with "Bloodstone & Diamonds".
Other notable International chart positions arrived as well with several Top 10 entires around the globe and general all-time-highest positions coming in from Spain, Switzerland, Scotland and Japan.
Frontman / guitarist Robb Flynn adds, “The chart positions coming in from around the globe are nothing short of incredible. The Head Cases of the world really made a show of force this week. But I gotta give an extra-special shout-out to the Head Cases of America. They stood their ground through a veritable hurricane of negativity, belligerant-ass reviews, and straight up online extremist-hate mudding the waters. To ignore all that, and stand by YOUR band means more than you will ever know. You deserve to be applauded so fucking loudly our hands should hurt from clapping and our throats from cheering.
We are unbelievably grateful to you.
And this news on the same day that Best Buy announces they will stop selling CD's altogether!
Feeling proud... and so should you be Head Cases!!".
Machine Head's World Chart position should arrive tomorrow with fingers-crossed to beat last albums startlingly high chart position of #12 on the globe.
