Metal By Numbers 9/13: A Day To Remember score a victory on the charts

Posted by on September 14, 2016


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

A Day To Remember have come a long way since they first decided to sue Victory Records, which included battles over breach of contract and whether or not they were allowed to release their album Common Courtesy back in 2013. Since then, Victory has seen not so great press, whereas A Day To Remember have moved on with their latest album, which topped the charts and gave the band a number one-selling record this past week.
