Spiritbox Smash First Week Charts As ‘Eternal Blue’ Debuts At #13 On Billboard Top 200

SPIRITBOX’s ‘Eternal Blue’, one of the mostly hotly anticipated debut albums in recent years, was released on September 17th to mass acclaim from both fans and media alike. Today, the band are thrilled to share that the album has more than exceed the overwhelming hype by smashing the week 1 charts, landing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and hitting the #1 spot across the Rock, Hard Rock and Vinyl charts, #2 on the Internet Albums and Independent charts and #3 on Digital Albums and Album Sales. ‘Eternal Blue‘ also debuted in the Top 20 of the official charts in Australia (#8), Canada (#17) Germany (#17) and UK (#19).

Speaking on the phenomenal success of their debut album, Courtney LaPlante and Mike Stringer share:

“To say we are overwhelmed by the reception to Eternal Blue is an understatement. We’ve literally spent the last 10 days trying to process it all. If you had told us when we started Spiritbox, back in 2017, or indeed, when we first started our musical careers years before, that our debut album would chart even in the Top 50 of the Billboard Top 200, we definitely would not have believed you. That it debuted at #13 is a total dream come true. The deepest, heart felt thank you to our incredible fans. We don’t have words for how much your support means to us. This band would not be here if it wasn’t for you. Eternal Blue is yours now. We hope we did you proud.”

SPIRITBOX arguably *the* hottest new band in heavy music, thrilled fans back in May with the official announcement of their long awaited debut album, ‘Eternal Blue’, selling out of all vinyl pre-orders within the first 24 hours of announcement. They released five songs prior to the album release. First came the unrelentingly brutal “Holy Roller” in September 2020. It debuted at #25 on Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs and charted as the #1 song of 2020 on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal. Then came heartbreaking and otherworldly “Constance” which recently re-entered the Billboard chats #1 Hard Rock Digital Song Sales, #4 Rock Songs Core Genre, #19 Hot Hard Rock Songs following the release of the very special reimagining of “Constance (Acoustic)“. Next came the album announcement along with new track “Circle With Me which charted on Billboard at #1 Hard Rock Digital Song Sales, #5 Hot Hard Rock Songs, #9 Rock Songs Core Genre, #12 Rock Digital Songs, #50 Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, #71 Digital Songs. “Secret Garden” followed and most recently, “Hurt You“.
In celebration of the album release, SPIRITBOX hosted a special Eternal Blue Pop-Up event in Downtown Los Angeles Arts District where fans could buy exclusive merch, vinyl, signed Items, and got to see an in-person Q&A with the band. Watch the wrap up video here
