The numbers are in for the past week’s record sales and despite being absent from the new music scene for over 15 years, Soungarden’s new album King Animal landed at No. 5 with 83,000 copies sold in the first week. That’s not as good as their last release back in 1996 where Down on the Upside debuted at No. 2 with 176,000 copies. But given the age of digital downloads, 83,000 copies ain’t bad! Green Day’s second album in their trilogy, iDos! landed at No. 9 with 69,000 copies sold. Deftone’s Koi No Yokem debuted at No. 11. That’s not bad for the rock scene as there’s a ton of competition with pop, country and hip hop on the Billboard 200.
They debuted at No. 9 with their second album in a trilogy and now Green Day has released some details about a forthcoming documentary that will be released next year. Titled iQuatro!, the doc will feature the ups and downs of recording their trilogy, some performances around the country and also the time in the studio. Some highlights from the film will air on VH1 November 28th. Check your local listings. The third album in their trilogy, iTre!, hits stores December 11th.
