Mindless Self Indulgence (MSI) debuts on Billboard's Top 200 Album Sales Chart at an astonishing #27 with their album "if." Released Tuesday, April 29th on UCR/The End Records, "if" has already spawned amazing chart numbers prior to album release. Still holding steady since its debut six weeks ago, the single "Never Wanted To Dance" remains at the #1 Position on Billboard's Hot Dance Single Sales Chart. No strangers to the dance charts, singles from their last full length, "Straight to Video" and "Shut Me Up," have both hit #1 and remained in the Top Ten for over a year each.
MSI also prove that in addition to their sales and chart rankings, they are a formidable presence online, with a fan-base which is not only rabid, but also incredibly faithful. For the last month, MSI have remained the Number One Band on MySpace Music in all territories, and in all genres they are competing for. It should be noted, MSI is the ONLY band to remain on the Top Ten Artist Chart consecutively since the inception of MySpace Music. In addition to MySpace, the band has recently had Top 5 rankings on YouTube as well as a smorgasbord of other social networking sites.
The band is currently at the start of its national Spring/Summer tour and will be playing Fort Lauderdale's Revolution tonight with dates leading them back to a massive hometown show in NYC on June 27th. The Birthday Massacre, Combichrist, London After Midnight, Hollowboy, Tub Ring, Fake Shark Real Zombie, and A Kiss Could Be Deadly are support in select cities.
