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.

AFTER EXTINCTION BREAKS 10K VIEWS IN A MONTH AT NWOTHM FULL ALBUMS

The album has been played 10,023 times already on the channel.

Our new album has broken ten thousand plays over at NWOTHM Full Albums! The new album has easily been our most successful for streaming on release as not only has NWOTHM Full albums been a success but all three single releases generated thousands of plays before the release of the album, with the single A Slave to The Grind being played over 10,099 times alone!

For those who prefer CD’s, we’re continuing to honour the pre-order prices until the finished product is shipped. You can order from 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

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.
