The Orchard Chart Toppers: December 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

It’s a new year, we’re back with vigor and motivation, and what better way to celebrate than by congratulating our charting artists and labels from the end of 2014? Because iTunes was shut between Christmas and New Year, our charts are a little bare for a couple of weeks there, but we’ve included what we could track back and it’s still pretty rad. First, we tilt our hats (and a little bit more) to Trevor Moran for making it to #1 on Billboard’s Heatskeekers chart. Pure Noise Records is well represented with Front Porch Step, who managed to chart with not just one but two records! And between Moto 6: The Movie, Days of My Youth, Shred Bots and more, our Action Sports Film releases have been making themselves known in charts around the world. Here’s to a great 2015!

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.

The Orchard Chart Toppers: November 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

We’re nearing the end of the year, and our November charts are in. Before Christmas music takes over for the year (who am I kidding? it already has!), we’d like to give a shoutout to all our charting artists and bands, namely: Machine Head for hitting #21 on the Billboard Top 200,  #2 on the Independent chart, #16 on iTunes’ Top 200 and #1 on iTunes’ Metal Albums chart, not to mention making it to Russia’s Top 20 on iTunes; Gemeliers, two Spanish brothers who have been on the Spanish charts for months now and don’t look like they’re going anywhere; and Oakley’s Action Sports film Snowboarding For Me, which stayed on the Top Documentary Movies and Action Sports Movies charts in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia for more than 3 weeks.

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.

The Orchard Chart Toppers: October 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

October was a month for the Hard Rockers and Metalheads of The Orchard, with some top positions for Relapse Records, Pure Noise Records, Nuclear Blast and Ipecac Recordings with Obituary, State Champs, Exodus and the Melvins, respectively. That doesn’t mean other genres did get their say: Soul got a good rep there with The Budos Band, and Army of the Pharaohs nailed it for Hip Hop, too. Abroad, Goat made its presence known in the UK and Turkish sensation Cem Adrian hasn’t left the iTunes Turkey Top Albums chart since he hit #1 with even just his pre-order. On the film front, Action Sports doc Days Of My Youth has been a chart staple, and one of our latest theatrical releases, Harmontown deserves a big shoutout too. Hats off, everyone!

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.

Happy Autumn and welcome to the busiest time of the year for music.

The Orchard Chart Toppers: August 2014

September 12, 2014 Featured News, Orchard News No Comments

The Orchard Chart Toppers

As we bid farewell to the summer months, we also bid congrats to some great acts who made themselves known on the charts this past month. Highlights include the hot new band Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas. This brand new act has shown tremendous organic growth, seducing fans at every turn, and landed some impressive spots on the charts with their debut Secret Evil. Join the bandwagon, guys. Spanish brothers Gemeliers took their local charts by storm as well, and label Vidisco released such awesome compilations, that together with other big local artists, they pretty much monopolized half of the Portugal official charts. Way to go!

August also saw the release of our very first theatrical film, Rich Hill. We all went to see the premiere as an exciting summer outing, and the film clearly hit home around the world. It’s a must-see — bring some tissues.

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.
