AFTER EXTINCTION BREAKS 42THOUSAND STREAMS SINCE RELEASE

Since the release of our album back in September, we have been keeping a close eye on where our album is being streamed. We still don’t have all the data from all the stored but so far the results are:

  1. YouTube:  32,139
  2. Spotify: 3,836
  3. Bandcamp Streams: 3,084
  4. Facebook: 2,751
  5. Apple: 267
  6. CD Sales (Bandcamp): 121
  7. Downloads (Bandcamp):  82
  8. Itunes Sales: 0
  9. Amazon Sales: 0

Total Streams: 42,067

Total Sales (digital and physical): 203

YouTube continues to be the place where the album is most streamed, with Spotify in second, but some distance behind. Free streams on Bandcamp are just over 3k now, converting into 82 purchases.

The growing trend still shows the audience moving away from physical media and paid-for downloads and towards streaming services which is in line with industry reports on music sales. However, to have had over 42k streams since the album release so far is an impressive number for a band our size and we can only hope this continues going forward.

KAINE STREAMED 334,506 TIMES IN JUST 4 YEARS + PAYOUT REVEALED

We have noted the interest in our streaming numbers vs. recent album sales so we thought we would give everything we have had since switching to Distrokid from CD Baby four years ago. These figures do not include the new album as they are delayed by several months and only reflect total streams across all platforms up to earlier this year.

Over four years we have had 334,506 streams that paid $1,258.70 (£1,118.01) to the band which represents a total pay-out of 0.0033p per stream.

Our older albums, Falling Through Freedom and The Waystone along with original live albums and EPs were taken offline after the switch, so the streams for those albums are not included in these numbers.

334,506 streams is an incredible number in just 4 years for a band that has not been featured in any major magazines, any bigger festivals, or extensive tours and with no label or managerial support.
