            [MENTION=65489]hardrockfan[/MENTION]:

            I assume you mean pure US album sales for this year, 2019?

            Looking at oldbloke's amazing estimates, total album sales for Ride, Master, Justice and The Black Album are close to about 250k:

            The Black Album is nearing 100k
            Master and Justice are around 50k.
            Ride shouldn't be far behind as it has been charting nearly as much as Master and Justice.

            So it's safe to say that their total album sales have crossed 300k up until now (perhaps it will reach 400k by the end of the year?).

                                                    Oldbloke estimates their 4 most popular albums already at 316k (so most likely more than 400k total albums sales).
                                                    Long live oldbloke! :-)
                                                    On page 50 you can see that their total sales in the period 2015-2019 amount to 2067k (4th of all artists).
                                                    (seems low, even without the Hardwired...ticket bundle-sales)
