Highasakite breaks unbreakable chart record

By Erlend Buflaten Posted: 06. Nov, 2015

Highasakite has written Norwegian chart history with 'Silent Treatment'.

Silent Treatment has spent 92 weeks on the official Norwegian album chart – the longest in the chart’s history.

Highasakite’s ‘Silent Treatment‘ from 2014 (Propeller Recordings) is now the longest charting album on the Official Norwegian album chart, Topp 40. The record breaking album has spent an impressive 92 consecutive weeks on the chart, sending old Norwegian favorites Odd Børresen and Lars Martin Myhre’s album ‘Noen ganger er det all right’ from 1995 off the throne.

Although ‘Silent Treatment’ has spent nearly two full years on the chart, it doesn’t seem to fall out yet. The album sits at #29 this week and except from a drop a couple of weeks, it has been among the top 30.

The groups manager, Glenn Larsen tells Music Norway about the historic record.

– This is huge! The fact that ‘Silent Treatment’ would be the longest charting album since the album chart’s start in 1967 was something none of us even thought when we started recording it. It’s clear that we’ve hit a nerve and created something that people really have embraced. Hard work, quality and long-term thinking are key words here.

Highasakite is currently working on their follow up album, set for release sometime in the first six months of 2016.
