Smashing Pumpkins, or Billy Corgan and the new lineup consisting of Schroeder, Mike Byrne, and Nicole Fiorentino, have announced some big news.
Today the band have launched a new website where they revealed that they have two new album on the way in 2015. The name of the albums are Monuments To An Elegy and Day For Night. The recording sessions for the albums began today with Howard Willing producing. The first new single will be out sometime this year
Here’s the full official note from Billy himself that he shared on the site:
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.’ 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.
Additionally, this stands as the initial post on a new nexus: The Panopticon, which through its simplicity should better address the speed of modern life. A continuing feature, items regarding each day’s recording will be shared that same evening, with 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.
The new website, which is known as The Panopticon, will be the platform for which the band will share info on the day’s recordings with information on song title, lyrics, picture, sound clips and more. Pretty cool. Lets just hope the music is up to speed. High hopes..
