Soilwork ChartThe Living Infinite, the ninth studio & first dual-disc album by Swedish melodic metal band , has debuted at #60 on the American Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, #11 on the Independent Albums chart, and #2 on the Hard Music chart with 7,854 copies sold the first week following its March 5th release.  The Living Infinite also debuted at #1 in the iTunes Metal Top Albums chart and was the #1 most added album on the CMJ radio charts.

Checking in from The Trocadero in Philadelphia during the band’s current headlining tour, vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid has the following to say about the multi-chart news.

“We are so stoked to see the incredible success of our new album The Living Infinite! Landing this high on the Billboard chart is simply amazing! It’s our highest chart position in the USA ever… and being #1 on the iTunes Metal charts is also jaw-dropping for sure!  We wanna extend a huge thank you to everyone who bought our new album, digitally or physically! Everyone seems to love it and we can’t wait to hit your town on our current North American tour and perform the new songs for you live! Thank you all for your amazing support!!!”
