Jack White's debut album Blunderbuss has been certified gold by the RIAA, having sold in excess of 500,000 copies in the U.S..
Released April 24, 2012 by Third Man Records/Columbia, Blunderbuss debuted at #1 on the U.S. albums chart--Jack's first ever recorded effort to do so.
Blunderbuss also debuted at #1 in several European territories, and was supported by a sold out world tour featuring all-male backing band The Buzzards and all-female backing band The Peacocks.
Blunderbuss was also the highest charting solo debut and biggest selling vinyl album of 2012 in the U.S., knocking The Beatles' Abbey Road" off the top spot (a position it had held the previous three years), Blunderbuss' sales are the highest for a non-catalog LP since Soundscan began specifically tracking vinyl in 2008.
