THE SMASHING PUMPKINS
ANNOUNCE 12-CITY U.S. FALL TOUR
LAUNCHING OCTOBER 5 IN LOS ANGELES AND WRAPPING OCTOBER 22 IN PHILADELPHIA

SHOWS TO INCLUDE MATERIAL FROM THE BAND’S UPCOMING ALBUM ‘OCEANIA,’
DUE IN EARLY 2012




THE SMASHING PUMPKINS--singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO--will return to the road this fall for an intimate 12-city U.S. tour that will serve as a warm-up to a big year of touring for the band in 2012. The fall trek launches in Los Angeles on October 5 at the Wiltern Theatre and wraps in Philadelphia on October 22 at the Tower Theatre.


Mixing classics, deep cuts and a few songs from the upcoming album OCEANIA--now due out in early 2012 (exact date TBA)--the tour encompasses dates in the band’s Chicago hometown (October 14, venue TBA) and New York City (October 18, Terminal 5). Tickets for the concerts—which follow the band’s 2010 critically acclaimed shows (see pull quotes below)—will go on sale shortly (see on sale info below). At all the shows, the Pumpkins will be joined by two support acts: Fancy Space People (featuring Don Bolles, who credits include the Germs, Celebrity Skin and 45 Grave) and Light FM, the band Nicole Fiorentino was in before joining the Pumpkins (see bio info below).


The Pumpkins are now hard at work putting the finishing touches on OCEANIA,which will mark their first full album since 2007’s Zeitgeist. OCEANIA is “an album within an album,” part of their in-progress 44-song work TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE.Featuring 13 new songs, OCEANIA will be released in early 2012.


Also this fall, EMI Music will honor the legacy of THE SMASHING PUMPKINS with an extensive campaign that will see the iconic band’s albums from 1991-2000 reissued in fully remastered deluxe versions, each with bonus material.


With the full support and guidance from THE SMASHING PUMPKINS--who’ve created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history, selling over 30 million albums--EMI will roll out the global catalog campaign with the band’s 1991 debut album GISH and 1993’s SIAMESE DREAM, both of which are due in stores November 15.


The excitement will continue into 2012 when EMI will reissue the 1994 compilation album PISCES ISCARIOT, 1995’s nine-times-platinum double album MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS, 1996’s five-disc box set THE AEROPLANE FLIES HIGH and 1998’s ADORE.


In 2013, their 2000 albums MACHINA/THE MACHINES OF GOD and MACHINA II: THE FRIENDS & ENEMIES OF MODERN MUSIC will be unified into one package. A best-of compilation will also be released in 2013. The pivotal group’s many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation.

Like it or not, Billy has and always will be Smashing Pumpkins, at least from a technical point of view. I know people think that the music will be different if the other familiar members were involved, but in all likelihood, it wouldn't be.

Aaaaaaaand no Southern dates. Why should I have expected better? So many good bands skip Atlanta...

At least I saw them with Jimmy Eat World in Houston last December.

Quoted for truth. The Pumpkins were mostly a one man band...well Jimmy Chamberlin is a beast too, but a massive part of SP was Corgan and Corgan only.
