Smashing Pumpkins Have Plans for Two Albums in 2015
Smashing Pumpkins, no matter the lineup, have always been grandiose, and it looks like their plans for next year are no different.
Through the band’s website, Billy Corgan recently announced that SP expects to release two albums next year: Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night. There’s no word when they’ll drop, or what their relationship is to each other.
Corgan told fans that they should expect a fair amount of guitars: "For those interested in sound, think: 'guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars, but more so on the epic side of things than, say, grossly metallic."
The release follows Oceania, which came out in 2012 and peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album has sold 102,000 copies to date.
As well, most of the material is already written, and the band has been in the studio. Adore producer Howard Willing is back working with the band.
Fans checking into Smashing Pumpkins’ website should expect updates throughout the process, including, according to Corgan: "song titles, lyrics, poetic impressions, pictures, sound clips, studio gear and the like offered for a circuitous, bird’s eye view of the process as it unfolds."
Over the years, Smashing Pumpkins’ lineup has changed, with Corgan being the last original member. Aside from him, the current lineup includes guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Nicole Florentino, and drummer Mike Byrne.
