MUTINY WITHIN recently parted ways with drummer Bill Fore and replaced him with 25-year-old "fellow Jerseyan" Chad Anthony. The band said in a statement, "It wasn't an easy decision [to split with Bill], but we wish him the best of luck moving forward. He's a great drummer and will always be a part of [the MUTINY WITHIN debut] album."
The self-titled debut album from MUTINY WITHIN sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 41 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
