DISTURBED Score Lowest Selling No. 1 Album on ARIA Charts Of All Time

DISTURBED Score Lowest Selling No. 1 Album on ARIA Charts Of All Time

Everyone’s favourite dad-metal (metal is for bald) band DISTURBED have made Australian record sales history – by scoring the lowest selling album number one album on the ARIA charts of all time, according to reports by News.Com. Just to highlight how stupid the ARIA charts actually are, the album Immortalized debuted at number one upon its original release in August of 2015 with reasonably impressive sales of 8242 units, disappeared completely off the charts and is now back at number one, despite only selling 2140 copies nationwide in the last week. The chart-topping success is due to a horrendously slow sales week, which saw the new Adele album Hello (which has sold more than half a million copies in Australia since its release in November) slump down to number two with a paltry 1995 units sold in the last week. This mean that Disturbed outsold Adele in the past week, which is quite frankly terrifying. Funnily enough, if ARIA factored in compilation albums into their overall sales numbers, the snappy SO FRESH: Hits Of Autumn would have nudged Disturbed from the top spot, which just goes to show that SO FRESH is basically the Nokia 3310 equivalent of compilation albums and could have saved us from such an undeniable tragedy if it wasn’t for those pesky regulations (DEREGULATE..uh…EVERYTHING). So there you have it – terrible band releases terrible album (unless you’re an Arnette-wearing suit/skate shoe combo wearing madman), and because nobody buys CD’s anymore you’ve allowed Disturbed to nab the number one spot by selling fuck-all albums. You should all be ashamed of...

I will no longer be playing, writing or touring with the band. I have put everything into this band for the past 9 years of my life and it’s about that time to find myself a new path. All for the better. I have accomplished everything and more through my music, travels, and experiences with Counterparts. Thank you to anyone who has ever supported me and/or the band. Thank you for allowing me to express myself through music on a much larger spectrum than I have ever imagined. Big thank you to the Counterparts boys, the OG Counterparts boys, everyone in between, family, friends, and girlfriend. Thanks for making this come to life. With all that said, I will never stop creating music. It’s just time for me to move on from the project I started when I was 15 years old. Counterparts will continue on without me, so give them all of your support and keep going to shows. -Jesse Doreen has been in the band since their formation in 2007 and helped write the majority of material on all releases so far, most recently their 2015 album, Tragedy Will Find...
