The Orchard Chart Toppers: July 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

July brought us much excitement on the charts, and we’re happy to be able to share the love and pride with you here. First, we’re stoked at how long we managed to take over the iTunes Brazil Singles chart, claiming up to 15/20 spots including the full Top 10 with local band and “SuperStar” reality TV show winner, Malta. Deathcore Metal champs Suicide Silence absolutely killed it — erm, no pun intended — debuting at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and staying put there and on the Independent and Current Albums charts for three straight weeks. Country/Hip-Hop Georgia man Colt Ford also took impressive hold of the charts; The Raveonettes’ surprise album Pe’ahi got a warm welcome both in the U.S. and their native market, Denmark; and we even scored a #1 Jazz hit with Smooth Jazz trumpet player, Rick Braun.

On the film front, Brandon Semenuk’s Rad Company didn’t go anywhere since last month, and is still claiming its spot on Documentary and Sports Films charts around the world. Other notable mentions include Zero to 100: The Lakey Peterson Story, an action sports doc on female surfing sensation Lakey Peterson, and Shock Till You Drop horror flick, Ghostlight.

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.

Experience Def Leppard’s Hysteria On Repeat

November 14, 2013 Artist News No Comments

defleppard_imgFor the “Rock Brigade,” “It Don’t Matter.” Def Leppard continues to go “On Through The Night,” saying “Hello America” and hello to the rest of the world.

If Def Leppard is not on the road, it is only to refuel for their next string of gigs. The legendary band played a series of shows in the U.K. through December of 2011 with Motley Crue and Steel Panther. A few months later, in the Summer of 2012, they were on the road with Lita Ford and Poison throughout the U.S. for over 40 dates. Most recently, Def Leppard played a residency at The Joint in Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to celebrate their hit album Hysteria. Fans had the opportunity to relive mega-hits such as “Love Bites,” “Animal” and “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” The “Viva! Hysteria” concert series ran from March 22nd to April 13th and was a huge success.

To commemorate the series, Def Leppard has released an exclusive live album/movie pack by the same name. The film was shot during one of the concert performances, and was screened in select theaters around the world. The whole thing is quite an experience, and to back it up, the record killed it on the charts, making it the band’s 16th charting album:

  • #24 on the Billboard Top 200
  • #24 on the Billboard Current Albums chart
  • #3 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart
  • #4 on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart
  • #9 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart

Enjoy the show, my friends, and Viva! Hysteria.

Year of the Whitesnake

April 25, 2013 Artist News No Comments

Whitesnake - Made In JapanMany artists have released live albums recorded at music venues in Japan. These artists include B.B. King, Deep Purple, George Harrison and John Coltrane, among others. Going on their 35th year together, British Hard Rock band Whitesnake have just added their name to that list with the release of Made In Japan this week.

Whitesnake played a set during Japan’s Loud Park Festival in 2011, which was recorded and originally only intended to be broadcast for Japanese TV and Loud Park promos. However, after three songs were heard on Loud Park promotions, the band received an overwhelming number of requests to make the entire set available for general release.

Made in Japan features classics as well as new material for which fans everywhere have been starving. Ax slingers Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach, who are both celebrating their 10th anniversary with the band this year, bring the blazing riffs and the face-melting solos we all know and love. Whitesnake‘s rhythm section (aka “The Wrecking Crew”), featuring Michael Devin on bass and Brian Tichy on drums, bring the pain with the hard-hitting beats and deep bass lines, further adorned by the lush atmosphere created by special guest keyboardist, Brian Ruedy. Of course, all this harmonic and rhythmic alchemy gives way to lead singer/founder David Coverdale and his powerfully seductive vocals.

In addition to the live tracks featured on Made in Japan, the band decided to include soundcheck recordings from the various venues at which they played during their 2011 Japanese tour.

The release of the record falls just in time for the commencing of Whitesnake‘s “Year of the Snake 2013″ World Tour, on which it’s certain the band will play even more historic, awe-inspiring shows.

To prepare yourself for the awesomeness (if that’s even possible), check out this video:

“Too Many Reasons” for Player to Come Back

February 21, 2013 Artist News 1 Comment

Player 'Too Many Reasons' Frontiers RecordsPlayer, the chart-topping American Rock band that brought you the 1977 smash hit “Baby Come Back,” has heeded its own advice — after a nearly 20-year absence, the group is coming back to drop a new album, Too Many Reasons, via Frontiers Records. Slated for a February 26 release, the record is sure to deliver the band’s signature groove-laden, dreamy sounds that blasted their self-titled debut to platinum status.

If you’re unfamiliar with these infectious rockers, here are some statistics for you: three Top 40 hits, two Top 10 singles, and one No. 1 hit with “Baby Come Back.” The group originally formed in the late 70s, touring extensively with acts like Eric Clapton, Heart, and Kenny Loggins, and this new release will hopefully spark a litany of live performances in the coming year.

In lieu of the new album, Player “redux” — led by two of the founding members, Peter Beckett and Ronn Moss — premiered the music video for “I Will,” the first single. The acoustic-led track has a retro style that is sure to please all Player faithful. With an anthematic chorus hook and summery, soft rock sounds, it’s clear that the time off hasn’t affected the band’s catchy songwriting abilities. And that makes sense, as Beckett, a seasoned songwriter that has credits ranging from Janet Jackson to Vanessa Hudgens, has composed music for “The Bold and the Beautiful,” myriad film scores, various artists, and his own solo music during the group’s hiatus.

Ronn Moss has kept busy as well, starring as Ridge Forrester, the male lead on “The Bold and the Beautiful” for the past 25 years. He’s also appeared in numerous other film and TV roles, and took second place on the Italian version of “Dancing With The Stars.” But in the wake of the new reformation of Player, he left his iconic television character on “B&B” to devote full attention to the group (and maybe also some attention to his side project, the web series Ronn’s Garage – don’t let the website deter you, we’re sure it’s epic.)

For more information on the new album as well as all things Player related, visit the group’s website. For your viewing pleasure… see below:
