New Smashing Pumpkins Possibly Out This Year, Says Billy Corgan
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan shared a fresh update regarding the band's new album, announcing that it might be released before schedule, possibly during the current year.

As reported, the band was set to unleash two new efforts, "Monuments to an Elegy" and "Day for Night," sometime during 2015, but it would seem that sessions are heading along quite nicely.

"'Anaise' finished," Corgan kicked off the website announcement. "That makes three. So in tribute we'll put up a pic of 'Anais #1,' the sybaritic coupletess.

"You ask what happened? I don't want to say. So let's just say there was a lot of moaning on about insufficient choruses (the old saw), and whether enough was enough. Imagine: more synths, more melodies, more vocal harmonies; more, more, more. You get the picture. Balancing Rome on the head of a pin. Or is it a camel?

"'Drum and Fife' tomorrow. Have I mentioned I'm looking forward to getting my life back? At least until we start the next album in the fall.

"Oh, and I'd love to brag about how good the stuff sounds, but every band-artist-braggart says that. So know it sounds awful. Everything is auto-tuned, and every chorus sounds like seven car commercials jacked together. Woe is me."

Touching on the release date matter, the frontman added, "We've actually floated out the prospect of putting out the album this year instead of early next; so yes, wheels are spinning to see if that's possible.

"Certainly would help those rumors of all these festivals were supposed to be playing come true. I hear it's summer *there when it's winter *here. But due to climate change, or disruption, or whatever they call it today who knows? As long as the band gets to play on the Sun..."

Billy has previously described the new material as "guitars, guitars and more guitars," adding that there's a definite "'90s vibe" present. As reported, Tommy Lee of Motley Crue took over the drumming duties during recording sessions, as Mike Byrne was fired after spending five years in the SP fold. Stay tuned for more.
