Okay, I recently heard a rumor that they are getting back together? Does anyone have any info on this? Do you think it's true? I'm too lazy to research myself.

I heard that there was the possibility, but that it didn't happen.

They're touring this spring/summer, and an album should (this is a rumor) come out as well.

Yeah, I also heard a while ago that Billy Corgan is going to do a solo ablum, but I haven't seen anything since then except this rumor.

another one from billy corgan? hmmm.... well chances are it is one or the other. i doubt he would do another solo album then make a cd with the rest of the band too.

Wow. That would be awesome.


eh they're alright

They are by far better than The Offspring. I am a big Offspring fan, but The Smashing Pumpkins have such variety and I do believe that they were the best songwriters music has seen.

When did he do that and what did he say?

By the way, Cherub Rock is a great song.

It's not like he's the first person to insult The Offspring. If I'm not mistaken, The Ramones did, too.

Report: SMASHING PUMPKINS Reunion Is Underway - Feb. 2, 2006

MTV News is reporting that onetime SMASHING PUMPKINS bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur as well as an undisclosed source "close to the situation" have confirmed that PUMPKINS bandleader Billy Corgan has been working on material that will, at some point, surface in the form of a new SMASHING PUMPKINS album.

"From what I understand, Billy [will be] making a PUMPKINS record over the next little while," Auf Der Maur told MTV News last week. "Everyone knows Billy doesn't need too many people to make a PUMPKINS record, other than Jimmy [Chamberlin, longtime PUMPKINS drummer] who he has [on board]."

A spokesperson for Azoff Management confirmed Thursday (February 2) that Corgan and Chamberlin have signed on with the firm as SMASHING PUMPKINS, and that the two are writing new music. A source close to the situation told MTV News that the duo plan to record over the summer and that the new PUMPKINS could surface before the end of the year however, no definitive plans are set.

Auf Der Maur said she's not sure whether Corgan has reached out to guitarist James Iha or bassist D'Arcy Wretzky to complete the band's original lineup, but she said she's told Corgan that she'd be happy to pitch in if he needs her; Auf Der Maur replaced Wretzky in 1999 and worked with the group until it disbanded in 2000.
