Smashing Pumpkins Releasing Two New Albums in 2015: 'Guitars, Guitars and More Guitars'
Next year is going to be quite a ride for Smashing Pumpkins fans, as frontman Billy Corgan has officially announced the release of not one, but two new studio albums in 2015.

Titled "Monuments to an Elegy" and "Day for Night," the albums were described as "guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars." The recording sessions have already begun yesterday (March 25), while the first single can be expected near the end of the year.

"Pleased to announce that I've just inked a new record deal with BMG that will see the release of two Smashing Pumpkins albums in 2015; titled successively: 'Monuments to an Elegy' and 'Day for Night,'" Corgan noted via official website.

"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. Recording sessions begin today, as plenty of songs have been written and ready to go. Manning the boards will be producer Howard Willing, with whom I first had the pleasure of working with during the 'Adore' sessions. We expect a single out by year's end," the frontman added.

A fresh studio update was posted today (March 26), confirming that the band has accumulated a whopping amount of 132 demos. "Spent most of the day listening to 132 demos. Yes, you read that right! 132! Crazyland ... And still another 20-25 to go. Once we whittle those down, we'll dive in tomorrow on a new round of song-work/arrangements for those chosen for 'Monuments,'" the note reads, along with the photo below.
