US chart preview
US chart site Hits Daily Double estimates that Faith No More’s Sol Invictus will sell in the region of 21-24,000 copies in its first week of release with 22-25,000 for sales plus streaming. That would bring SI close to the first-week sales figures of 26,000 for Album of the Year. They estimate that Sol Invictus will only be the fifth best-selling of the new entries in the chart, therefore facing a battle for the top 10.
That said, Sol Invictus remains at number 3 on Amazon.com in CDs and MP3s and has hovered in an around the top 10 on iTunes all week.
Faith No More have only hit the US album chart top 10 once previously when Angel Dust debuted at number 10 in July 1992.
Those wonderful posters from the Faith No More US tour shows are still on sale at Secret Serpents. They say: “Faith No More just wrapped up the first leg of their North American tour, and once again we curated the posters for the tour. The copies at the shows sold out VERY quickly, but we made sure we had some available to those who couldn’t make it. We have very few copies left of most of these, so don’t miss out!”
And Secret Serpents also say that there will be more posters from later US shows and the European tour on sale later in the year.
Australian Guitar have teamed up with Mushroom Promotions, Reclamation Recordings and Ipecac Recording to offer three Faith No More packs to giveaway. Each pack contains a copy of Sol Invictus and an A2 album promo poster. CHECK IT OUT HERE.
