Smashing Pumpkins Might Record Two New Albums Simultaneously
Less than three weeks ago, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has officially announced the beginning of the new record writing process. And it seems that it's going very well, as the band is already considering the recording of not one, but two new albums. During a recent interview on 93 XRT radio station, the frontman started off with a light chat about the current state of the Chicago Cubs saying that the team is in for a "weird year." The discussion then turned towards the new Smashing Pumpkins material and the group's 25th anniversary. "We're back in the studio, and were talking about doing two records simultaneously. It's going to be the 25th anniversary of the Smashing Pumpkins, and we might play at the Metro to celebrate." According to Corgan, one of the albums would be "focused on the world that needs everything to be perfect," while the other one "would be more raw and done the old way." As for the anniversary concert the frontman mentioned, the Chicago's Metro venue represents a special place for the band, since it was the location of their very first performance as the original four-piece on October 5, 1988. The latest Smashing Pumpkins record, "Oceania," saw it's release in June 2012 via EMI/Martha's Music. With 54,000 copies sold within the first week, it debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart.
