Gooood morning everybody!  Hope everybody had a great weekend and let’s get back into the thick of it.  No surprise this week that Papa Roach “Help” is again #1 for the 6th week running.  Coming up fast in the rear view mirror is Seether “Let You Down.”  The track is just 52 spins behind #1, and up 142 spins.  #3^ is Starset “Monster.”  The track is up 47 spins.  #4^ is Mastodon “Show Yourself,” up 75 spins.  5^ is Incubus “Nimble Bastard,” up 42 spins.

6^ is Volbeat “Black Rose,” up 36 spins.  Moving a notch to 7^, Skillet “Back From the Dead,” up 49 spins.  Look for these to go top 5 in the next week or two as the top ten begins to shuffle.  Moving 10 to 8^, Metallica “Now That We’re Dead,” up 175 spins.  New adds at press time, KQRA and KZRR.  No question that this will be yet another #1 track for the band.  Jumping 13 to 10^, Avenged Sevenfold “God Damn.”  The track is up 133 spins.  KDOT moves the record to medium rotation this week.

Moving a notch to 11^, All That Remains “Madness,” up 79 spins.   First week album sales of “Madness” over 9,700; over 11,000 with consumption.  (As you may recall from the 1993 movie “Tombstone” where Val Kilmer played Doc Holliday who was dying of tuberculosis, known at the time as consumption.  This is not to be confused with consumption to which I refer above, but I do recommend you put this movie on your queue.)
New airplay at KATT. New add at press time WXRX and KFMA.   12^ is Through Fire “Breathe.”  Now is the time to move this track into power rotation and get it into the top ten.  Moving from 15 to 13^, Royal Blood “Lights Out.”  The track is up 188 spins.  New airplay at KKBA, KMOD, WXNX, KICT, WRKZ, WTKX and KBPI.  I look forward to seeing the band live at the famous Viper Room in the Sunset Strip this Wednesday.  Watch for narcissist selfies with the band to follow.  14^ is As Lions “Aftermath,” up 101 spins. New airplay at Octane.  The biggest jump this week from 38 to 15^, is Stone Sour “Song #3.”  The track is up 515 spins.

16^ is Missio “Middle Finger.”  Leaping 28 to 17^, Rise Against “The Violence,” up 275 spins.  New airplay at Music Choice, KRXQ, WXNX, WFXH, KDOT, WXZZ, WRKZ, WCPR and many more.  New adds at press time, KQRA, WKRL and KMRQ.  18^ is Avatar “New Land.”  19^ is Motionless in White “Loud.”  20^ is Biffy Clyro “Howl,” up 14 spins.  New airplay at KAZR.

Moving 36 to 31^, Beartooth “Sick of Me.”  The track is up 43 spins.  New airplay at WRZK, WZOR, WYBB, WMGM and WHQG.  New add at press time, WKRL.  Make sure that this is toward the top of your stack at your music meeting- let’s break Beartooth together.  #33 is Black Map “Run Rabbit Run.”  (Did you ever notice that rabbits always look like they’re about to say something but they never do?)  Debuting at 34^, I Prevail “Alone.”  The track is up 133 spins.  New airplay at WQXA and WIIL.  Over 1,000 singles sold this week.  Closing in on 2,650 with consumption.  75,000 sold to date.  The band just put on a great show at the Carolina Rebellion.  Danny Wimmer Presents’ Gary Spivak says, “I Prevail drew the largest noon- time crowd in the event’s history.”  New adds at press time, KXXR, KAZR, WBYR, WRCQ, WCPR, WIXO, WQXA, WKRL, WXZZ, WRZK, WYBB, WMGM, KFRQ and more. This is going to be a big deal- better to be on this sooner than later.
