Posted by on August 7, 2013

We’re not always 100% right in our predictions when it comes to album sales. It’s like predicting the weather except 1) we have a high success rate and 2) no one ever cursed us for unforeseen torrential downpours. But in the case of a certain band and the release of the first of two albums […]
