music news 29/11/2018

The new Smashing Pumpkins album, "Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun." has tanked on the Billboard charts for the first time since 1991.

Sitting at #54 on the charts, the new LP marks their first studio release since James Iha had rejoined the band. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album is by far their worst-charting debut since they independently released their first album "Gish" (1991) which peaked at #195 for a week on the Billboard 200.

Alternative Nation also reports that the new Chris Cornell retrospective album debuted slightly worst, taking the #67 position. 

To add salt to the wound, popstar Mariah Carey's Christmas album debuted 7 spots higher than Smashing Pumpkins.
