Fallen is the debut of rock band Evanescence on the Wind-up Records label, and their first album to achieve widespread release around the world. In contrast, their previous album, Origin, was only released in limited numbers in their hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas. Released in 2003, Fallen spent 16 weeks in the United Kingdom album charts, reaching the number one spot only once. In the United States, however, the album remained on the chart for upward of 100 weeks, and only peaked at number 3. In the U.S., the album was certified platinum by the RIAA in April 2003 (having also gone gold earlier in the same month), [1] (http://www.billboard.com/bb/riaa/archive/0304.jsp) double platinum in June 2003, [2] (http://www.billboard.com/bb/riaa/archive/0306.jsp) and triple platinum in October 2003. [3] (http://www.billboard.com/bb/riaa/archive/0310.jsp) It was certified four times platinum in January 2004, five times in April 2004, [4] (http://www.billboard.com/bb/riaa/archive/0404.jsp) and six times in November 2004.
