Last April a new band was announced containing names that should have peaked some attention, but little fanfare was raised on purpose. Fronted by the DeftonesChino Moreno, Palms was kept under relative wraps while Deftones launched their latest album Koi No Yokan.

In addition to Moreno, the Los Angeles based quartet is comprised of former ISIS members Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Clifford Meyer. Formed in 1997, ISIS was an award-winning experimental post-metal band, that disbanded in 2010 shortly after their final tour.

Landmark album is the 22nd full-length to reach 10 million sales in the SoundScan era.

Pearl Jam‘s landmark debut album “Ten” becomes the latest addition to the 10 million-sellers club in the U.S.

This week, the 1991 Epic Records release surpasses the 10 million U.S. sales mark according to Nielsen SoundScan, making it the 22nd album to reach the threshold since the company began tracking data in 1991.

In the week ending Feb. 17, the album sold nearly 4,000 copies (up 159% over the previous week). That brings its total sales to about 1,000 over 10 million.

It is the fourth album to hit 10 million U.S. sales since the start of 2012. In that span of time, “Ten” follows Linkin Park‘s “Hybrid Theory,” Usher’s “Confessions” and Adele’s blockbuster “21.”

“21” now stands as the No. 15 best-selling album of the SoundScan era, with 10.4 million sold. It is currently about 186,000 copies behind Britney Spears‘ “Baby One More Time,” which is in 14th place.
