Why not keep Ghost at #1? The FB Fan Activity percentage is still high and they’re killing it on tour. +48,000 YT views.

What’s killer is that FB Fan Activity percentage. Awesome.

It’s all about the buzz. Huge spike this week with the announcement of their Lamb of God support slot. Band seriously needs to work on their social network presence, though.

Still more albums sold in week six than most bands’ debuts, but, like always, their FB percentage is startlingly low.

Facebook: 0.9% Fan Activity (3,485,286 likes · 31,567 talking about this)

Band needs to release another single or something to keep the momentum going.

Their June 11th album release is now quickly approaching and they released another new track this week.

Band could use some help in the FB and YT departments, but initial buzz is good. Stream a brand new track here.
