The Smashing Pumpkins definitely saw their star rise with the ambitious 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness' double album back in 1995. The cover art for this classic collection featured a woman emerging from a star that was shooting through the atmosphere.
On the eve of opening a new chapter for the Smashing Pumpkins with the release of 'Oceania,' frontman Billy Corgan offers his thoughts on his former bandmates, calling one "just a piece of s---" and claiming that another lied about the circumstances surrounding his departure from the band.
As the June 19 release date approaches for Smashing Pumpkins' latest opus ‘Oceania,’ frontman Billy Corgan is making the media rounds. Never afraid to say exactly what is on his mind or ruffle feathers, in a recent interview with Antiquiet about the new album, Corgan addressed a variety of topics.
With just one week to go before its release, the Smashing Pumpkins are firing up the anticipation machine by streaming their latest album, 'Oceania,' via iTunes. In addition, they have announced an intimate album release show in New York City.
Any Smashing Pumpkins fan worth their salt knows that there is a wealth of unreleased material in frontman Billy Corgan's vault. As part of their ongoing reissue campaign, the band will re-release their celebrated double disc, 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,' with up to 75 previously unheard tracks.
Smashing Pumpkins will issue 'Oceania,' their seventh studio album, on June 19. It exists as part of the band's ambitious, 44-song 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' project, which is released in song-by-song format and has been since 2009. Yet 'Oceania' still stands apart as a separate piece.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan celebrates his 45th birthday on March 17. Corgan has been the mastermind for Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan, as well as releasing his own solo and soundtrack work, making him one of the most renowned figures in rock for more than 20 years.
