Commented the band: "Wow! You guys are unbelievably great! After making us go top 10 in Germany you also lead us in the charts of nine more countries! Thank you so much for your support, this is not real! <3"
Earlier this week, when the German chat entry was revealed, the band responded: "BAAAM!! Toping the Chaaarts! We are so happy to say our album charted at #4 in Germany. We simply don't know what to say, words can't even express how we feel. Thank you for the love and support Germany! We love you back <3"
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger added: "I knew they were on to something really big when I first heard BLUES PILLS back in October 2012. It made me shiver, it was pure magic. The authenticity they've got, the power they transport and said magic they create can't be put in words. It's pretty much the most beautiful and timeless music - it touches you. We at Nuclear Blast are extremely proud that both the band's and our hard work has paid off! I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the entire team, all the supporters, the booking agencies and of course the band's management for making this one a real pleasant and exciting campaign . From here on to the stars - BLUES PILLS ARE HERE TO STAY!"
