The first single, “Good Man,” has already sold close to 10,000 singles online, and has been heating up the Active Rock radio airwaves since its release last month, and as a result, it’s currently bulleted at #29 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart and is bulleted at #32 on Billboard‘s Active Rock Tracks chart.  It’s getting spins SiriusXM’s “Octane” channel (where it was the #2 most played song last week and is currently #13 and climbing on the weekly “Big Uns” countdown), WIYY (Baltimore), WJJO (Madison), WIIL (Chicago), WBUZ (Nashville), KILO (Colorado Springs), WBYR (Fort Wayne), WQBK (Albany), WWBN (Flint) and others.  Program Directors at stations around the country have been chiming in about their excitement about the new music:

“’Good Man’ is a stand out song from the first listen.  Egypt Central was a big band for 98Rock, and the early signs are this could be bigger!  I wanna be a ‘Good Man!’”
— Steve Huber – WIYY/98Rock (Baltimore MD)

“’Good Man’ is already Top 5 phones! This song sticks out and sounds awesome on the air.”
—  Tony LaBrie – WWBN/Banana 101.5 (Flint, MI)

Awesome song!  Already getting good research.  It’s nice to get a solid record like this to play, and I feel it’s going to be a big hit in Colorado Springs.”
—  Jack Mehoff, KILO (Colorado Springs, CO)
