The band’s Rod Argent says crowd-funding new album "Still Got That Hunger" has "been brilliant for us."
In December 1964, America was in the grips of the British Invasion's first year, and England's The Zombies shot to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their debut chart hit "She's Not There.” The smash kicked off a successful five-year period in which the band notched three top 10s on the Hot 100 between 1964 and 1969 (including the No. 3 hit “Time of the Season”), followed by a breakup that lasted over two decades.
Fast-forward to 2015 where, half a century after their first hit, the band is back on six different Billboard album charts, thanks to a new album and a previous project.
On Top Rock Albums (dated Oct. 31), the band’s new album, Still Got That Hunger, debuts at No. 35 with 3,000 copies sold in the week ending Oct. 15, according to Nielsen Music (the band’s best sales week since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991). The set also bows at No. 15 on Internet Albums, No. 24 on Independent Albums, No. 94 on Top Current Albums and No. 100 on Top Album Sales. In addition, Odessey & Oracle, perhaps the band's most well-regarded record, enters the Vinyl Albums chart at No. 24 thanks to 1,000 in LP sales.
