July 23, 2008 – Everfine/Atlantic recording group O.A.R. have landed the highest album chart debut of their career with their sixth studio album, All Sides , grabbing the #13 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. All Sides also landed at #3 on Billboard’s Digital Album Chart as well as in the Top 10 in more than 20 major markets throughout the country, including New York, Washington D.C., Boston, and Chicago. All Sides is O.A.R.’s first new studio album since 2005’s popular breakthrough, Stories of a Stranger, which included the band’s hit singles “Love and Memories” and “Heard the World.” All Sides features the first single, “Shattered (Turn The Car Around),” which quickly became the most-added song at Hot AC and Triple A radio, while its companion video has jumped into Medium Rotation at VH1.
“We have so many people to thank for the debut of All Sides, most of all our fans for their unwavering support of our music through the years,” said O.A.R. “They make us feel as though we’re on top of the world.”
