I'd just like to point out that my 14-year-old brother is a huge, huge fan of Gaslight, and has been since SoS. Why does age matter? If people like it, that's good. It's not "your" band, it's Brian's band, and he wants to be famous, so let the man be famous.

First of all, agree with the above post completely. Secondly, the standard issue is currently #29 on Amazon, the vinyl is #46, and the deluxe is #93. I don't believe there is any other album with 2 editions, let alone 3, anywhere near the top 100, and that bodes well.

Just for fun, to update this, at about 12:15 on release day in the US, Amazon has:

Standard CD: #28
Vinyl: #36
Deluxe CD: #48

The band has THREE versions of the same album in the top 50 on the third largest physical music retailer in the States, while no one else has more than one. Again, I don't know what that equals up to in terms of an actual chart position, but it's impressive to me and shows the true dedication of the fanbase (I'm sure people are buying multiple versions, in some cases).

I want the band to be big and popular because they are great guys who write fantastic songs and they totally deserve to be huge.

However I DONT want them to be big because then we'd have 14 year old girls singing their songs and they wouldn't be "Our" band anymore. And as everyone knows smaller shows are much better than arena shows!

going on almost three years ago now I saw the guys at the trocadero in philly. murder by death the loved ones and broadway calls opened. it was awesome. looking around that night, i saw a lot of different people. I think it's safe to say there were people from all different backgrounds there. There were guys and girls well into their 50's as well as teenage girls around 14/15 like you mentioned. And you know what? They were singing just as loud and having just as much fun as anybody else at that show that night. And honestly, that's what its all about. Every show I've been to since then has been that way.... a much more diverse group than one would expect... I don't understand why "14 year old girls singing their songs" would be a bad thing. If i ever have a daughter I would only wish she would be cool enough to identify one of the best bands in the world at such a young age.

What do you think first week sales will be like? I have a feeling they are actually going to be pretty high. I can't wait to see how Handwritten did at the end of the week.

Very good news from Germany this morning. Handwritten is currently #1 in the official Sales Trend Charts. Thursday is the official album listing by Media Control, but it looks very good....

http://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2012-07/24121054-the-gaslight-anthem-mit-neuem-album-handwritten-auf-erfolgskurs-im-herbst-auf-deutschland-tour-007.htm


Google Translation

The Gaslight Anthem after two years ago with their album "American Slang" Top 10 had the right of the Media Control Charts conquered, for the U.S. band began a time of change. Since Friday (. 20.07) is her major-label debut, "Handwritten" commercially available and is on a sensational success: is in the sales trend charts "Handwritten" at the top - not only cult author Nick Hornby is excited about the work .

- Anyone who ever bit frustrated - a girl, a boy, his own ego - can hear this music and to understand and feel full of energy. (...) Songwriter who fear no comparison with the greats of rock. The Gaslight Anthem at the head of a long line of cool people. Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About A Boy) in The World

If laut.de in his review of the entire album five out of five stars and says attacks cult author Nick Hornby in the world with all my heart for the U.S. band, then this can only mean one thing: The Gaslight Anthem have with their new album "Handwritten" struck at the heart. The new album has been a Friday (20.07.) Available in Germany and is located at the top of the sales trend charts. In the autumn, their tour of Germany.

A major development since its inception in 2005, The Gaslight Anthem laid doubt: Tireless tours around the globe, a growing fan base, chart success and ultimately the contract with major label and recording sessions with producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine). For singer and guitarist Brian Fallon, guitarist Alex Rosmilia, bassist Alex Levine and drummer Benny Horowitz, now begins the next chapter of their success story.

In the fall of The Gaslight Anthem are on tour in Germany in October and some selected rock festivals before.

Is it? Are the charts I'm looking at online really out of date?

Looking at this: http://www.apple.com/itunes/charts/albums/ it's not even on there.

don't know what's up with that. maybe they update the website once a day? or once a week? don't know, but i opened iTunes and changed the store to the US one, and there they are. they were on #4 for a while, then moved to #2, and now #1.

It's possible (I'm at work and don't have iTunes). They are top 10 in pretty much every non-US country except Japan, so if the website is updated through yesterday (when it was released everywhere else), that makes sense.

It's definitely #1 right now. I'm looking at the store and it plainly lists it in the top spot.

Yeah, looking at the site now, it SHOWS as #2 (the deluxe) behind Passion Pit. It's #1 in Canada, #2 in the UK, and top 10 in a bunch of places that got it Friday, like Germany, Austria, Finland and Sweden. I assume in the actual software the charts are live.

Current Amazon Charts:

#12 Regular Edition
#21 Vinyl
#28 Deluxe Edition

We have all 3 versions in the top 100 as people have already said. Just think what number we would be if they combined all 3 versions into one group. Very Happy

Ireland Rock Charts:
Number 1 is Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits, number 2 is TGA Handwritten. Hard to compete with the Boss but I was pleasantly surprised with how well TGA have done. Does this mean we deserve some shows?!

EDIT:
On a side note, the Norwegian Rock Charts: Bruce has 6 of the top 10 .. Jeez!

When do record charts usually come out for the week. I really want to know first week sales #. I feel like they are going to be way higher than most of us expected.

I got the last copy at Best Buy today and they had about 4 empty rows of them.
