Riding a tidal wave of rave reviews, killer TV appearances, and Triple A Top 10 single "Do You" (just added into rotation at mtvU and MTV2), Spoon’s eighth – and by all accounts, best – studio album They Want My Soul (Loma Vista/Concord) has entered the U.S. album chart at #4, selling nearly 40,000 copies in the week since its August 5 release. They Want My Soul's #4 debuts ties the band’s career high, established by its previous album Transference (Merge) that debuted in the same position in 2010. They Want My Soul also claims the #1 spot at independent retail by a large margin, with nearly 20% of the record's first week tally coming from Spoon's groundbreaking Vinyl Gratification initiative. Additionally, They Want My Soul landed at #3 on the digital chart.
Spoon recently kicked off its tour supporting the new album with a sold out show on the Fairbanks Lawn of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, as well as show-stealing performances at festivals including Governors Ball, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands, all of which back up ROLLING STONE's warning that ”you’d be a fool to miss Spoon in concert if you get the chance”.
