Handwritten around the world:
UK - 2
Netherlands - 3
Ireland - 7
Australia - 14 (Their first time charting in Australia)
Belgium - 32
Finland - 45 (lol)

Sorry guys. Im trying to make them known on Finland, but its really
hard because Finns have the shittiest taste on music and radio stations. At least Gaslight have made 4 gigs on here and 2 them club shows that sold out pretty quickly. Im going To make my best Basketball

Billboard Charts are usually out late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

Hits Daily Double (which is another chart, with, I think, a few different methodologies) has an early chart with approximately 52 percent of their sales reported. As of around 2 PM ET on Monday, the album is 5th with just under 20K units sold, and is closer to the top album (29K) than the 10th album (10K). The album is behind Nas (9000 copies), Passion Pit (about 1800 copies), Kidz Bop 22 (1600 copies) and Zac Brown Band (1100 copies).

I'd take 5th, for sure, although I hope that when the final chart is done here, or when Billboard releases their final chart, the number is closer to 3rd as was predicted on that Billboard article. I'd note that if the numbers projected (and there is no way to know where the partial numbers are coming from - if NYC or NJ posts later, for example, we'd likely jump) but it projects to about 38K sold, which is very very good and fits in with the Billboard estimates.

Cause people love listening to music to make them feel cool. If a cool kid likes one musician, why not join them and become cool by listening to them too.

hmm, I'm gonna think about this a bit and maybe make a thread about it. Anyone is welcome to beat me to the punch. I just don't want to derail this one but I'm intrigued.

The Gaslight Anthem take home Official Record Store Chart gold

31/07/2012

By Dan Lane

While Plan B’s Ill Manors may have taken home chart gold for Team GB on the Official Albums Chart, it’s US band The Gaslight Anthem who have come top of the table on the Official Record Store Chart.

The New Jersey rockers’ fourth studio album, Handwritten, was officially the most purchased album of the last seven days in the nation’s independent record stores, knocking Great Britain's Plan B into second place.

The Official Record Store Chart, which was launched in April of this year, is compiled from sales through the UK’s coolest and most vibrant independent record shops. Last year independent record shops accounted for over 2.5 million album sales in the UK, and 95.8% of all vinyl album sales.

In addition to The Gaslight Anthem’s Handwritten (Number 1) and Plan B’s Ill Manors, there are eight other new entries on this week’s Official Record Store Chart.

American metallers Slipknot debut at Number 6 with their new Best Of collection, Antennas To Hell, while Canadian dream pop duo Purity Ring are new in at Number 7 with their first album, Shrines. Massachusetts electropopsters Passion Pit enter this week’s Official Record Store Chart at Number 11 with their second album, Gossamer. Om’s Advaitic Songs debuts at Number 12, and Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier’s new solo album, Silencio, enters at Number 13.

Micachu & The Shapes are new in at 15 with Never, while Joss Stone’s The Soul Sessions Vol. 2 debuts at 21. Searching For Sugar Man by Rodriguez completes this week’s wave of new entries, debuting at Number 34.

Handwritten #2 in the German Charts. It's their best Chart Position. AS was at #8.
People should listen now a bit their older albums. Especially SoS and 59

Google Translation

The Gaslight Anthem are entered with their new album "Handwritten" at number two on the charts.

Baden-Baden (DAPD). The Gaslight Anthem entered with their new album "Handwritten" at number two on the charts. This is the biggest chart success of the U.S. band around frontman Brian Fallon: During the first two albums were better known in smaller circles, it managed to "American Slang" (2010) recently ranked eight, as Media Control on Tuesday in Baden-Baden announced. At the number one rapper Cro The Gaslight Anthem are but a must. Linkin Park slip from two to three.

I wonder if being at No.2 in the UK and Germany will expose the album to even more potential buyers, so I hope they stay high for a few more weeks

hits chart is final: http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi

2 1 ZAC BROWN BAND ATLANTIC 47,092 -38% UNCAGED
1 2 NAS DEF JAM/IDJ 42,510 -70% LIFE IS GOOD
-- 3 GASLIGHT ANTHEM MERCURY 37,688 -- HANDWRITTEN
3 4 KIDZ BOP KIDS RAZOR & TIE 34,757 -46% KIDZ BOP 22
-- 5 PASSION PIT COLUMBIA 34,657 --

I think that's directly correlated with Billboard sales. Assuming so it means they officially got #3 =)

Seriously, the boys from jersey who have only been around for like six years have the third best selling album in the whole country now. Surreal

Can we talk about how ridiculous it is that Kidz bop is even on this list...

It's not DIRECTLY correlated, but their rules are similar enough that Gaslight should be third on Billboard as well (there was enough space between Kidz Bop that it shouldn't matter).

I didn't see 'Handwritten' being sold at all in any of the supermarkets last week, I wonder how much better sales would have been if they had. Finally saw the regular edition yesterday in Tesco for £6 (just over $9 for you US folks), which is a crazy price for an album just released.

"Right behind him is the chart's highest debut, the Gaslight Anthem's "Handwritten," at No. 3 with 40,000. It's easily the best sales week for the act, which had previously lodged its highest frame when 2010's "American Slang" debuted at No. 16 with 27,000. (That album also marked the band's previous chart peak.)"

""Gossamer" was a monster in terms of downloads, as a full 74% of its first week were sold digitally. (Comparatively, Gaslight Anthem's first-week digital share was 52%)."
