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.

Suicide Silence’s Unstoppable Debut

This past week, American Deathcore band Suicide Silence’s highly anticipated album, You Can’t Stop Me, hit digital retailers worldwide. Here in the Retail Marketing department, we have been working hard on preparing digital music stores for the arrival of this record, heralding updates of its pre-release campaign to all of our accounts. iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Beats Music were very receptive to the band’s first effort in over two years, and due to some awesome placement, fans were able to help push the album to #18 on the iTunes Top Album Charts and #2 on the iTunes Metal Charts in the US.

We secured lots of great placement in stores abroad as well. Slots on the main, Rock and Metal pages helped You Can’t Stop Me soar to #2 on the latter pages in iTunes CanadaAustralia’s iTunes charts also got a dose of Suicide Silence, scoring the top Metal and Rock albums alongside some killer placement on both of those pages.

In addition, a Tagboard contest was implemented in conjunction with all of the retail placement we received. Fans were encouraged to submit pictures of themselves with screenshots of their iTunes, Google Play or Amazon digital download of the album with the hashtag #YCSM. This entered them into a competition to win a signed booklet or poster. The interaction was huge and retail stores as well as fans loved it! Some fans even bought three formats of the album. Engagement is key and because of this, Suicide Silence and their fans successfully unlocked all of the potential to help make this a really great week of release.

After all of the buzz, You Can’t Stop Me debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and #2 on the Independent Albums Charts!

The Orchard Chart Toppers: June 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

It’s been an exciting start to the summer with our chart topping artists and labels! This month, we’re cheering to The Story So Far, who’s currently killing Warped Tour with a number of other Pure Noise artists; San Francisco Symphony, who topped Billboard’s Traditional Classical Albums and Classical Albums chart; and while we don’t usually include Top Tracks in these summaries, we just had to for one particular week on iTunes Brazil, where two of our artists dominated more than half of the Top 20, as well as Julias Moon and Porcelain Black, who came in #1 in their respective Danish and French iTunes genre charts. Last, but certainly not least, Brandon Semenuk’s Rad Company, fresh from our expanded partnership with Red Bull Media House, absolutely killed it on pretty much all related iTunes films charts around the world.

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.
