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.

AFTER EXTINCTION CLOSE TO 35K STREAMS IN JUST OVER A MONTH

Our new album After Extinction continues to perform well in terms of streams. The album has accumulated 34,852 so far, and that’s without numbers for other services such a Deezer, Amazon and so on yet to be reported. The breakdown is as follows:

  • YouTube: 26,077
  • Bandcamp: 2,660
  • Spotify: 3,465
  • Facebook: 2,650

It is clear that YouTube is the most popular platform for people to listen to the new album. By comparison physical sales lag way behind at just 90 CD sales, even at a reduced price, and standalone paid downloads just 65 purchases even at a reduced rate of £1.

You can order the new album here.

AFTER EXTINCTION NOW AT 33,193 STREAMS FOLLOWING ALBUM RELEASE

Our streams for the new album continue to grow as we have now broken over 33 thousand streams. We still do not have the full data from DistroKid, which covers many other stored but with what we do know it has been performing well so far.

After Bandcamp Friday we now have 88 pre-orders for the CD and 65 album downloads. We would very much like to improve this number in the coming weeks. The artwork is being finalised with the printers ready for printing this month.

  • YouTube: 25,037
  • Spotify: 3,045
  • Bandcamp: 2,472
  • Facebook: 2,639

Total: 33,193
