CHEVELLE's 'The North Corridor' Projected To Sell 28K-32K First Week

According to music industry web site Hits Daily Double, CHEVELLE's new album, "The North Corridor", is likely to sell between 27,000 and 30,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The SPS figure is expected to be between 28,000 and 32,000.

SPS, a practice used by Billboard magazine, stands for "sales plus streaming," which includes album sales and converted track sales plus converted streaming data.

For those interested: 10 tracks sold equal one album sale (since $1.29, the cost for an individual track, multiplied by ten gives you $12.99, a common price for an album, and 1,500 streams is equivalent to one album sale.

"The North Corridor" was released on July 8 via Sony Music. The CD was helmed by Joe Barresi, the American record engineer and producer who has previously worked with bands such as KYUSS, MELVINS, TOOL and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE.

CHEVELLE bassist Dean Bernardini told Fuse about "The North Corridor": "We have to play the singles that people know, and we always try to pepper in new stuff and stuff we like to play, which is usually heavier. I think this record was designed in a way to be more aggressive and more fun to play onstage, and that's just going off the reactions we see from our perspective. You can tell when a crowd is into what you're doing — I think that drove the darkness of this record. It was, like, let's play more stuff that we love playing onstage!"

"The North Corridor" track listing:

01. Door To Door Cannibals
02. Enemies
03. Joyride (Omen)
04. Rivers
05. Last Days
06. Young Wicked
07. Warhol’s Showbiz
08. Punchline
09. Got Burned

CHEVELLE has sold more than four million copies of its seven studio albums in the U.S. and scored 13 Top 10 hits at rock radio, including the chart-toppers "Send The Pain Below", "Vitamin R", "Face To The Floor" and "Take Out The Gunman".]
