Following their performance at the GRAMMY’s last week, Denver-based band The Lumineers sold over 66 thousand copies of their GRAMMY-nominated self-titled debut album to achieve Platinum sales status. Since its release last April by Dualtone, the album has sold over 1 million total records, and this week was #6 on the overall Billboard chart.

The album is anchored by the band’s popular first single “Ho Hey” which is now triple-platinum and not showing any signs of slowing. Last week alone they sold nearly 200,000 copies with a running total of almost 3,500,000 copies sold in just 11 months. “Ho Hey” also spent eight weeks at #1 at Triple A radio and two weeks at #1 at Alternative Radio, helping to make The Lumineers the first independent label artist to have a debut single reach #1 at three separate formats–Triple A, Alternative & Hot AC.

The band’s second single “Stubborn Love” is following in the footsteps of its predecessor. “Stubborn Love” is currently sitting at #1 at AAA Radio for it’s eighth straight week, and is now Top 10 at Alternative radio.

The band are preparing to hit the road in the US for some dates this spring. World-wide, the band is selling out every date they play. See below for complete itinerary.
