The Countdown Clock Has Ended, We Now Know What The Smashing Pumpkins Are Up To

All the teasers have paid off and the countdown has come to an end. It doesn’t seem like an album yet, but The Smashing Pumpkins have announced that they’re reuniting (mostly) and going on tour. The “Shiny and Oh So Bright” tour has Billy Corgan reunited with classic lineup members James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, plus late-2000s guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The tour will highlight the first five albums of the Pumpkins catalog which include Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina.
