Following last Friday's record sellout of this year's Splendour in the Grass festival, Secret Sounds are excited to announce that festival headliner THE SMASHING PUMPKINS will be playing very special sideshows in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.

For these headline performances, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS will be debuting a unique stage design in Australia created to reflect the visual themes to go along with the full presentation of their new album, "Oceania" - which is set for release on June 22, 2012, through Create/Control - as well as playing plenty of classic Pumpkins catalogue.

Said Billy Corgan of the new show: "Australia is the perfect place to usher in a new era of The Smashing Pumpkins, where we look to combine an epic rock show with the latest in visual mapping technology to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our fans."

Alt rock'n'rollers WOLFMOTHER will join THE SMASHING PUMPKINS as special guests in Sydney and Melbourne. WOLFMOTHER'S self-titled debut album catapulted them onto the national and international music scene when it picked up the J Award for Album of the Year, multiple ARIAs and a Grammy Award, going on to sell more than a million albums worldwide.

About The Smashing Pumpkins:
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history having sold more than 30 million albums, and won multiple Grammy Awards in the process. Formed in Chicago in 1988, they released "Gish", their influential and platinum debut in 1991, which was followed by albums including the nine-time platinum "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness" and the four-time platinum "Siamese Dream", as well as the platinum certified 1998 album "Adore". The pivotal group's many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation. The PUMPKINS returned in 2007 with their acclaimed sixth album "Zeitgeist" and they have since remained on the cutting edge of music and technology with various online releases. "Oceania" is their 7th studio album and the band will support it with a global tour in 2012.
"Oceania" will be released on June 22, 2012, through Create/Control.
