their last lp was god awful
lol The Celestials, Oceania, and Panopticon
Aaron Turner was hiding in the making of this album
Or they have a weird obsession with Isis.
another album? what happened to Teargarden by Kaleidyscope?
14. In the Absence of Talent
15. Wavering Red Sea Mosquito
Aaron Turner was hiding in the making of this album
Was going to say the same thing.
"another album? what happened to Teargarden by Kaleidyscope?"
this is part of it
im looking forward to this
Slightly looking forward to this. Hopefully will be a little bit better than Zeitgeist and the songs that have already been released off of Teargarden.
Goddamn Billy and his bald head.
"Punk rockers The Smashing Pumpkins "
say what now?
I will put money down that this will suck Billy Corgan's balls sack. Any takers?
Digging: Godflesh - A World Lit Only By Fire
Will probably suck. Mellon Collie and Siamese Dream are the only ones that've mattered.
Last album wasn't that bad, the production was awful.
I have high hopes for this, last couple of Eps were pretty good.
Billy still has it
This will be terrible.
Nineteen Eighty-Four theme going on here but will most likely suck
Digging: FKA Twigs - LP1
I miss old Smashing Pumpkins.
wasn't billy talking this up saying it's their best since mellon collie?
EVERYONE GATHER AROUND YOURSELF, everyooooone EVERYOOOONNNEEEEE!
Well at least this album will pay for the wax Billy Corgan uses to keep his head shiney.
one of my favorite bands, but i'm certain it will suck. billy's just too stale now, his voice is just grating instead of quirky and whiney.
lol my friends dad went to highschool with the singer... he said the guy was a loser and they made him eat dog shit one time.
Punk rockers The Smashing Pumpkins are going to release a new record, titled Oceania
Punk rockers The Smashing Pumpkins are going to release a new record
Punk rockers The Smashing Pumpkins
I liked almost everything this guys have released but that title is a very bad signal
Don't even care, this will probably kick ass.
The song they have up on SmashingPumpkins.com is amazing. Sounds like the Gish days
That's cos it was written in the Gish days.
Saw 5 of these songs live last fall, and they all kicked ass. Barring some sort of terrible production/studio mishap, Billy is gonna surprise all of you. If their live show was any indication, Billy has found a way to indulge in the old Gish/Siamese Dream sound without sounding like he is rehashing things. Quasar and Panopticon are classic Pumpkins rockers, Pinwheels is ridiculously pretty, Pale Horse is one of the saddest, most heartfelt songs Corgan has written, and the title track will go down as one of the best epics the Pumpkins have ever released. Cannot wait for this album.
well this is unfortunate
I'm feeling melancholy and infinite sadness throughout my body. I hope Billy can take his head out of his as for a day or three to help make a proper Pumpkins album.
This would be exiting news if it was 1997
Band has released some classic albums but after their last release the expectation level has definitely dropped. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Hope it's as edgy as Corgan is currently.. dissing Lana Del Rey and all. Rock and roll
they will never come anywhere close to Siamese Dream ever again
Oh yeah, that Smashing Pumpkins cover band that has Billy Corgan in it.
Digging: Flying Lotus - You're Dead!
I won't be disappointed if this is at least as good as those EP's he's been putting out.
Digging: We Were Promised Jetpacks - Unravelling
I still think this could be pretty solid. Those Teargarden songs were either horrible or awesome, so hopefully this will be more consistant.
the early albums weren't even that good so damn will be the worst album ever made
Gish is my favorite album of all time
But this will be average at best
Digging: Nurse With Wound - Spiral Insana
Gish was a great album, overlooked
deadwing got me more excited and somehow so did redcrown
This isn't Smashing Pumpkins, it's Billy Corgan with a new band of youngsters. Jimmy Chamberlain isn't even there.
I move that they change their name to Billy's Kids.
The Smashing Pumpkins was always Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlain did his part but those other 2 were pointless when it came to the actual music.
Lol they weren't pointless at all
James actually had some part in creating some of their best songs (Soma, Mayonaise, etc)
Yeah like a couple of songs..
Notice they were all cowritten by Corgan, Billy was fine without the occasional help Iha, concidering like over 90% of all the albums were written by Billy
I met Billy when they played here in Tulsa. I asked him what he was listening to at the time. He said he was listening to a lot of Rush....
And yeah this will suck hard.
"Billy was fine without the occasional help Iha, concidering like over 90% of all the albums were written by Billy"
But guess what happened when Iha and D'arcy left? The Pumpkins turned to shit
That's a matter of opinion.
I mean Billy has released a couple of good tunes since then
but it's nothing like it used to be
Saw them in late 2010, they were fantastic live
Mellon Collie and Siamese Dream are the only ones that've mattered. 
I mean the reason why the other members didn't join up for the reunion is because Billy's an asshole
is it just baldy and the drummer or did darcy and Iha come back?
Actually Billy is the only former pumpkin left
They played mostly older material plus a few tracks from the Teargarden project when I saw them.
Billy was always an asshole lol
So, when have Smashing Pumpkins ever been punk?
Billy went through a really bad phase after the Pumpkins broke up. I truly believe that Oceania will be his emergence out of that phase. The show I saw in October was one of the best concerts I have ever been to- and no, I am not a blind fan. I'll admit that about half of Zeitgeist was garbage, the Teargarden project was okay in parts but overall a massive failure. I even saw a show in 2010 that was a huge disappointment- Billy was overindulgent, and the set list sucked. But there has been a massive turnaround since then, at least in live performance.
stop man you already got my hopes off enough i cant take another disappointment!!!!!!!!!
So many disappointments from this band
lol just Billy???? wtf
kinda sad that he feels the need to troll the band name so hard. can't he go with Zwan instead? this would be like Zach using "Rage Against the Machine" without the original machine to back him up. dumb
