California’s Trapt have been making headlines across several publications in recent months, but barely for their music or their at the time forthcoming eighth album, ‘Shadow Work’.

In May, however, they claimed on Twitter that the soon-to-be-released full-length record would be “one of the top 5 albums that will ever exist for all of time”.

After being released on July 3rd, it turns out that the album only managed to shift a total of 600 copies in its debut week, according to Nielsen SoundScan data, which is an 87% drop from their previous studio album, ‘DNA’, released in 2016.

Of course, when this data was raised to the band on Twitter they disputed it, claiming that they in fact sold almost 4,000 units in the same week.

As a result of these sale numbers, ‘Shadow Work’ failed to enter the Billboard 200 chart.
