SMASHING PUMPKINS RELEASE ‘PANOPTICON’ AS SECOND OCEANIA SINGLE
The Smashing Pumpkins have released “Panopticon” to radio as the second single off of Oceania. The first single off of the album was “The Celestials,” which has performed modestly on radio peaking at #29 on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart and #45 on the U.S. Rock Songs chart. No videos have been filmed for either song. Oceania has sold over 102,000 copies in the United States, but has done very well critically. The album debuted at #4 in the United States with 54,000 copies sold in its first week. The band’s previous album Zeitgeist debuted at #2 in the United States with 145,000 copies sold in its first week back in July 2007. That album’s lead single, “Tarantula,” peaked at #2 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.
