As if their remarkable debut on the American billboard charts was not enough, it appears as if Linkin Park have taken over the world with Minutes To Midnight, if record sales are to be of any indication. In the album's first week of sales, Minutes To Midnight has gone number one in several countries, with platinum record sales (already!) in several countries including (but not limited to) Australia, Japan, Singapore and Canada. Quoting from their official myspace: "One week after its international release, the album has debuted #1 in the US, UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, Norway, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Philippines, Italy, Sweden, Austria, and Ireland and is certified platinum in Australia, Canada, Indonesia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, Austria, Switzerland, and France. It has also been certified gold in Czech, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand and UK. “We’re shocked and humbled by this extraordinary show of support. We invested ourselves entirely into the creation of this album, with the hope that this music would resonate with our fans as deeply as it does with us. We couldn’t be more excited about today’s news,” said guitarist, Brad Delson." Source: Linkin Park's Myspace Thanks to shockwave for the news!
