Metal By Numbers 10/26: Dillinger don’t dissociate album sales

Posted by on October 26, 2016


Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.

If you haven’t seen Bram Teitelman’s video of DEP frontman Greg Pucaito’s two story leap at a recent show, do that now. Then jump for joy yourself when you see that that the band has broken into the top 10 when their sixth and (allegedly) final album. They seem to be pretty adamant about the break up being legit but, like comic book character deaths, band’s do tend to get back together at one point or another. Regardless, if this ends up being the last time you see a DEP album featured on MBN, at least you’ll remember they went out with one of multiple bangs.

Notable Debuts:

The Dillinger Escape Plan, Dissociation (Party Smasher Inc.)
Debut #8
12,700 sold

If this truly is Dillinger’s final album, then they’ll be going out with their first top ten debut. This is the second-best sales week of the band’s (possibly over) career.
