Braid's "No Coast" charted on Billboard Top 200 (#119 the first week of sales)! It's my first time ever charting on Billboard. We also entered into the CMJ charts at #20, moved up to #9, and then moved up to #8 - hoping to move up to the top 5, but we'll see (nice to break the Top Ten! CMJ Charts). Specialty Radio is picking up the new album "No Coast" (as well) - I've heard it on XRT, and 101.1 here in Chicago. I was hearing it's being played on a ton of other Alternative stations across the country, as well. Super stoked. Thanks to everyone who's been so supportive. A lot of you have mentioned that you like "East End Hollows" and I'm super stoked about that.
Gizmodo reviewed "No Coast" - what!? Yeah! ... "When the Band That Narrated Your Teens Can Still Narrate Your 30s"
