Talk tunes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan has confirmed the band will get back together.

The singer told Mancow Muller; “I just talked to (Pumpkins guitarist James Iha) the other day- things look good for us to play”.

The Smashing Pumpkins were a key part of the 90s music scene, shaping the sound of music as we know it today.

Although the band lives through Corgan, the original line up haven’t been together for over 14 years.

Billy Corgan is currently on tour across America, playing surprise gigs in unconventional venues, writing and recording for both The Smashing Pumpkins and new projects.


This is welcome news, if true.

It will last until the benefit of the money no longer outweighs their dislike for one another.

One of my all-time favorite bands. I hope this happens and that it's good.

Bank accounts won't replenish themselves! Just kidding (I think?). I've never seen them live and would love to change that.

Saw them back in like '07 and they were really good with whatever lineup they had at the time. I'd be all in for these shows.

Hopefully fat corgan doesn't split his skinny slacks jamming out some cherub rock.

Saw them a couple of times in the early and mid 90's. One show in Kalamazoo they had this Bruce Lee and Godzilla footage playing on a screen with a heavy drum soundtrack, preshow, and it just kept building and building and getting more intense til the lights dropped and they launched into something thunderous. It was pretty awesome.

I remember reading Spin in college and they reviewed Gish so I went out and bought it. That disc was on heavy rotation for a very long time.

Out for years, they were only misdemeanors.

Here's hoping Chamberlain is still straight. Heroin drymounting sucks.
