The Lumineers Debut Album Goes Platinum


Following their performance at the Grammy's last week, Denver-based band The Lumineers sold over 66 thousand copies of their Grammy-nominated self-titled debut album to achieve Platinum sales status. Since its release last April by Dualtone, the album has sold over 1 million total records, and this week was #6 on the overall Billboard chart.

The album is anchored by the band's popular first single "Ho Hey" which is now triple-platinum and not showing any signs of slowing. Last week alone they sold nearly 200,000 copies with a running total of almost 3,500,000 copies sold in just 11 months. "Ho Hey" also spent eight weeks at #1 at Triple A radio and two weeks at #1 at Alternative Radio, helping to make The Lumineers the first independent label artist to have a debut single reach #1 at three separate formats--Triple A, Alternative & Hot AC.

The band's second single "Stubborn Love" is following in the footsteps of its predecessor. "Stubborn Love" is currently sitting at #1 at AAA Radio for it's eighth straight week, and is now Top 10 at Alternative radio.
