Current A Perfect Circle and former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha has stepped back into the world of being a solo artist, with his 'Look to the Sky' album arriving next week. But, for those who want to sample it before the disc arrives in stores, Iha has united with TeamCoco.com to stream the effort a full week before its street date.
Attention, Smashing Pumpkins fans: Loudwire is teaming up with Diffuser.fm to give one lucky reader a copy of the deluxe reissue of the Smashing Pumpkins compilation album 'Pisces Iscariot.' Originally put out in 1994, the album contained 14 B-sides and outtakes. We are giving away a prize pack consisting of a deluxe CD reissue of 'Pisces Iscariot' along with the recent deluxe reissues of the Pumpkins albums 'Gish' and 'Siamese Dream.'
Billy Corgan is the only remaining original member of the Smashing Pumpkins, but that doesn't mean the band can't still crank out challenging and enticing music. Beginning with an orchestral part reminiscent of the Pumpkins classic 'Disarm,' the band's new track 'The Celestials' is certain to hit Smashing Pumpkins fans at their very core.
James Iha, the former Smashing Pumpkins and current A Perfect Circle guitarist, will release his solo album 'Look to the Sky' on Sept. 18 via The End Records. The album was produced by Iha and Nathan Larson (ex-Shudder To Think) at Iha’s studio Stratosphere Sound in New York. The song 'To Who Knows Where' is now available for streaming (link below).
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has been spitting a ton of venom lately while doing interviews for the release of the band's latest album, 'Oceania.' Whether declaring his desire to "piss on Radiohead" or calling former guitarist James Iha a "piece of s--t," Corgan hasn't been holding back in the least. In one of his most recent interviews, Corgan took the time to defend Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose and his decision to reject a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
