JOURNEY’S ‘REVELATION’ SELLS MORE THAN 104,000 UNITS IN DEBUT WEEK

Three-Disc CD/DVD Package Exclusively Available at Wal-Mart Stores

June 10, 2008 — JOURNEY’s new three-disc CD/DVD package REVELATION has sold more than 104,000 copies in its debut week according to Wal-Mart Stores, marking the band’s biggest first week’s sales since 1996’s TRIAL BY FIRE. Released June 3, REVELATION is being sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club in North America, Walmart.com and Samsclub.com, and Journey’s official website, Journeymusic.com. REVELATION’s first week’s sales marks a 1400% increase over the band’s 2005’s first week’s sales of GENERATIONS.

“We are thrilled with the early success of Journey’s ‘Revelation’ music project, and clearly our customer is excited about it too,” said Jeff Maas, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Entertainment, Wal-Mart U.S. “We believe that if we continue to find innovative products, priced to showcase the value, our customers will show their excitement by purchasing the product. Journey has been great to work with and clearly this reflects a win for them and for our customer.”

The first disc consists of 11 new songs, the second is filled with 11 re-recorded classics, and the third is a live, in-concert DVD. All of the music on REVELATION was produced by Kevin Shirley (who previously worked with JOURNEY on their Platinum-certified TRIAL BY FIRE album).

REVELATION marks a new chapter in the legendary career of multi-Platinum rockers JOURNEY, thanks to two singles at Rock and AC radio (“Never Walk Away” and “After All These Years”) and rave reviews, including the New York Times who hailed: “…the band seems to have taken rock vitamins: it feels alive.”

JOURNEY–Neal Schon (guitar), Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass), Deen Castronovo (drums) and Arnel Pineda (vocals)—is currently on a European tour through June 28. They’ll start a massive summer U.S. tour with special guests Heart and Cheap Trick on July 9 in Denver, CO.

  1. Are you freaking kidding me?! 104k? Wow. The recent Eagles album is at what? 7x platinum? You can sell more albums exclusively at Wal-Mart than you can with a wide open release! Maybe that’s the way to go these days.

    Good for Journey. I’m not huge fan, but they obviously have killer singles and I actually considered buying this one yesterday when I was at Wal-Mart.

  2. Am not a bit surprised here, their new lead singer is truly amazing. He’s no SP emulator, he has a great voice with passion!!!! GOOD LUCK, JOURNEY!!!!
