DT cracks the US Top 10!!!!
Just got this below email from our A&R guy at Roadrunner....

Dream Theater's Black Clouds & Silver Linings entered the US Billboard Charts today at #6!!

This is truly amazing....that after almost 25 years together, this band is still growing and progressing and doing bigger and better numbers than ever.....I can't think of many bands that can claim that...

Plus - a progressive metal album with four songs over 12 minutes in the US Top 10???
(wedged between Jonas Brothers, Eminem and Hannah Montana!)
Hell must've frozen over!!!!
(this must be a first of its kind.....)

See the statistics below.....

Thank you everybody! [&:]

Прогрессив метал группа с категорически прогрессив метал альбомом в десятке самых продаваемых альбомов в Америке. Чуть-чуть менее популярны чем Eminem, несмотря на классический материал со средней длинной песен в добрых десять-двенадцать минут. УРА ТОВАРИЩИ!

from Monte Conner (Roadrunner Records):

We did 40,285 units in the first week to come in at #6 (!!!)

That is DT’s highest US chart number ever, beating “Systematic Chaos” which charted at #19 back in May 2007 and until now was the band’s highest chart debut.

That is also DT’s highest first week units total ever - handily beating “Awake” which did 36,160 first week back in October 1994 (#32 on the chart). “Awake” was the first (and very heavily anticipated) DT album in the wake of the band’s previous breakthrough album “Images And Words” - with its smash hit “Pull Me Under” - and yet here we are 15 years later totally crushing it.

Previous DT highs:
Systematic Chaos: 35,689 (#19) – May 2007
Awake: 36,160 (#32) – October 1994

FYI, 4,783 of those sales were digital (over 10%), and we have actually scanned 40,591 to date because there were pre-release street violations of 306 units last week.


AND lastly, we are the #2 debut of the week. Below is the Top 10:

1
BLACK EYED PEAS
E.N.D. (ENERGY NEVER DIES) ..

2
JONAS BROTHERS
LINES VINES & TRYING TIMES

3
SPEKTOR*REGINA
FAR

4
MATTHEWS*DAVE BAND
BIG WHISKEY & THE GROOGRUX KIN

5
EMINEM
RELAPSE

6
DREAM THEATER
BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS


7
TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE F
SOUNDTRACK

8
LADY GAGA
FAME

9
GINUWINE
MAN'S THOUGHTS

10
HANNAH MONTANA
HANNAH MOVIE SNDTRK


So there you have it. To achieve all of this 25 years into the band’s career is simply a monumental feat, not to mention it was done in a poor economy, where it is hard to find a real record store and where sales are down 52% since 2001 and probably down close to 20% this year from 2007.

Congrats to all!!!!!!!!!
