Bring Me The Horizon‘s bold stylistic jumps on their latest album “Amo” saw a divisive response develop amongst the commentary on their social media in the weeks leading up to the record’s January 25th release. It would seem that split opinion may have also factored its way into sales of the record as well in certain territories.

Amo” shifted roughly 16,000 copies in the United States during its first week of availability, debuting at #14 on the Billboard 200. While traditional album sales continue to plummet amid the meteoric rise of streaming, those sales still mark a considerable drop from the band’s 2015 album “That’s The Spirit“, which shifted roughly 62,000 units in its first week.

While U.S. audiences appear to have been somewhat reluctant to embrace the band’s far more accessible new sound, other territories were far more interested. “Amo” brought the band their first #1 in their native UK, with 27,000 units sold—61% of which were traditional sales.

Amo” also opened at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Albums Chart—becoming the band’s fourth successive album to do so. If you’ve yet to hear the effort, you can find an official stream of it here.
