Smashing Pumpkins Set to Release New Album 'Monuments to an Elegy' on December 9
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has announced plans to release the band's new album "Monuments to an Elegy" on December 9.

Chatting with Stereogum, he noted, "Actually, the first one, 'Monuments to an Elegy,' has been bumped up to, at this moment, December 9th. It’s funny, I put some of that information on a weekend post ... it's interesting how the internet works. I put that on a weekend post and nobody picked up on it."

As reported, the album was initially planned for 2015, but got finished faster than expected, resulting in schedule changes. However, the group's second new album, "Day for Night," is still set for 2015 release.

In related news, Corgan noted that SP could easily live without him. During a recent Chicagoist interview, he stated, "I've said this before, I think it would be dumb to end the Pumpkins ever again because the Pumpkins live without me anyway. So I might as well just let it be and pick it up whenever I feel I should. The past few years I've wanted to pick it up a lot and I've felt good about that. But I think you look for points of resolution."

Apart from the fresh tunes, the latest recording sessions resulted in an escalating bromance between Billy and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, who joined the SP fold in the studio for new album recordings.

In other news, Corgan has announced plans to revisit older recordings for yet another future release. More info here.
