Philadelphia trio GOOD OLD WAR has scored a #2 Heatseeker debut this week with their self-titled, sophomore album. Upon release, the album leapt to the #1 slot on Amazon’s overall digital chart, also making its way to #1 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.
A devout fan base and online buzz has propelled the release’s momentum. The band has had two successful live performances on Ustream, drawing as many as 20,000 viewers. A fan contest has seen supporters posting tracks on social networks, hanging homemade flyers in student unions and creating awareness on platforms like Twitter. The band also performed several in-stores for retailers, including Best Buy and Portland’s Music Millennium.
Much of the band’s success is owed to their intense touring schedule, which now finds them in the middle of a thirty-date headline run.
