TOTO XIV Debuts Top Ten In Nine Countries

After a ten year recording hiatus, Toto has returned with one of their most successful albums ever.  Released last week,TOTO XIV charted all around the world showing the true dedication of their worldwide fans.  The album landed in the Top 10 on the charts in nine countries (Germany #4, Netherlands #2, Japan #2, Denmark #7, Czech Republic #10, Finland #5, Norway #6, Sweden #4 and Switzerland #3).  TOTO XIV also became the first new studio album to chart in the US & UK since 1988’s The Seventh One.

“We’re pleasantly stunned at the response,” exclaimed David Paich. “We couldn’t be more pleased with this initial success! And we’re always blown away when a new TOTO album bursts onto the Charts.  We owe it all to our friends and Fans!"

“I am happily shocked, thankful and surprised,” echoed Steve Lukather.  “ I can’t begin to thank you all for the support of buying real music and the love and kindness you have all showed this band for 38 years. So much thanks to our team and Frontiers records and all the people that work with us and most of all to the fans and our friends.  It means so much to us.  This one is for Mike and Jeff and all the Porcaro's!”
