Unsigned London band The Boxer Rebellion released their sophomore record, Union, through iTunes on Tuesday, January 13th.
24-hours later the band and their fans have officially entered the iTunes US and UK Top 10 Albums Charts. They are also enjoying the No. 2 position in the iTunes US Alternative Chart (behind My Morning Jacket) and No. 3 in the iTunes UK Alternative Chart (behind Kings of Leon and MGMT). The Boxer Rebellion are expected to announce the release of a suped-up fan-friendly set of physical albums later in the year as well as a North American tour.
I dunno, I hadn’t heard this record or this band before today, but this seems like a pretty big deal to me. Could they be the next CYHSY-like sensation?
