Snakes & Arrows Billboard chart details

Thu, May 10, 2007@9:28AM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 5/12@9:48AM: Snakes & Arrows debuted at #16 on Billboard's comprehensive European album chart.

UPDATE - 5/10@9:58AM: Reader mtb2112 posted some info on the Tastemakers chart in the comments and I thought I'd echo it here. According to Billboard, the Tastemakers chart is a core-panel chart, driven by sales from about 300 stores, including independent coalitions and small chains that are actively involved with artist-development programs. Here is a list of the top Tastemaker releases from 2006.

Billboard has updated their website and we now have all the details regarding how Snakes & Arrows faired on the various album charts.

As we already knew, it debuted at #3 on The Billboard 200 chart. But it also did well on several other charts. It was #1 on the Top Rock Albums chart, #2 on the Top Internet Albums chart, and #5 on the Top Digital Albums chart. And I don't know what this means, but it was #1 on the Tastemakers chart? Cool.

And in related news, reader hemmetti let me know that the album debuted at #4 in Finland. Vapor Trails only made it as high as #11 and Test for Echo #9 (thanks to JP for this info) - so this is a very good showing. It likely has a lot to do with the fact that they'll be playing Helsinki for the first time on the upcoming tour.
