Fort Worth pop-rockers Green River Ordinance‘s latest release, Under Fire, has done something that only maybe The Toadies’ last album, Feeler, has ever done: crack iTunes’ top 10 most downloaded albums.
Last week, GRO released Under Fire, the follow up to 2009’s Out of My Hands, the five guys’ fourth recording and now a revenant of their time on a major label — they’d signed to Virgin Records a little over a year before putting out Out of My Hands.
The independently released Under Fire is currently iTunes’ seventh most downloaded album, up from No. 9 last week, right ahead of Pink Floyd’s The Wall (Deluxe Edition) (No. 9), Adele’s 19 (No. 10), a Whitney Houston greatest hits album (No. 13), The Black Keys’ El Camino, and dozens of other recordings by internationally renowned artists.
GRO will embark on a tour soon but has no Fort Worth date scheduled.
UPDATE (Mar 3)
GRO frontman Josh Jenkins said he won’t know until Tuesday the exact sales figures but estimates that they are “in the thousands.”
