Congratulations to All Time Low, whose sixth album, Future Hearts, is the No. 2 release in the country right now. The band grabbed the second spot on the Billboard 200, after a close race with the Furious 7 soundtrack, selling 75,000 copies in their first week.
Previously, the band’s highest charting effort had been 2009’s Nothing Personal, which moved 63,000 units and came in at No. 4. Both Nothing Personal and Future Hearts were released on Hopeless Records.
“Coming in at No. 2 — with a career-high peak on the chart — is rock band All Time Low with its new album Future Hearts. The set starts with 80,000 units – of which 75,000 are pure album sales: the band’s best sales week yet. The new album surpasses their previous high-water mark, set when 2009’s Nothing Personaldebuted and peaked at No. 4 from a 63,000 sales start. Future Hearts was the top selling album of the week, and launches at No. 1 on theTop Album Sales chart (which ranks titles based on traditional album sales). TheFurious 7 soundtrack is No. 2 on the Album Sales chart, with 45,000 sold (up 36 percent).”
“The band’s been very authentic and connected to their fans,” Hopeless president/founder Louis Posen told Hits Daily Double. “This global success is very rare for a rock artist on a truly independent label, but it shows that there are no longer any barriers to success for artists and labels looking to do it their own way. Independent music makes up 35% of the music business and All Time Low just made sure that percentage will continue to grow.”
