RED’S UNTIL WE HAVE FACES IS THE HIGHEST DEBUT IN THE NATION AT NO. 2 ON BILLBOARD’S TOP 200

The twice GRAMMY-nominated rock band RED delivers the highest debut in the country with its third studio project Until We Have Faces claiming the No. 2 spot on the coveted Billboard Top 200 chart today. Additionally, RED debuts at No. 1 on the following Nielsen SoundScan charts: Current Hard Music, Current Rock Music, Current Alternative, Christian Rock, Current Contemporary Christian Album and Record Label Independent charts. Until We Have Faces also remained in the Top 5 on both iTunes’ Overall Album and Rock Album charts its entire street week.

The positive momentum leading up to this debut included seeing No. 1 on iTunes’ Overall Album chart and extensive media coverage by outlets such as USA Today, Dallas Morning News, Billboard magazine, AOL Music, CBS Radio, MSN, Alternative Addiction and HM Magazine. RED’s street week was capped off with a riveting performance of its No. 1 radio single, “Faceless,” on TBS’s CONAN last night.

“We’re completely beside ourselves,” offered an emotionally charged Anthony Armstrong. “We attribute the success of ‘Faces’ to our fans. We are well aware that we only get to do this because we’re supported by a lot of incredible people coming to our shows and connecting with us online every day. To say that we’re humbled is an understatement.”

The band returns to Los Angeles next week for a performance on NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Wednesday, February 16. (“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” airs weeknights at 11:30/10:30 CT).
