Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan reveals that the new album will feature a lot of guitar work.
The rock band plans to release not one but two new albums in 2015.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan announced that the band will release two albums next year, titled Monuments To An Elegy and Day For Night. A single is due by the end of 2014.
Recording sessions began on Tuesday, said Corgan, with many songs already written. Production is being handled by Howard Willing, who worked with the band on the sessions for 1998 album Adore.
Corgan said of the new music: “For those interested in sound, think: ‘guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars’, but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.”
The announcement was posted on smashingpumpkinsnexus.com, with Corgan calling it “the initial post on a new nexus: The Panopticon”, where “items regarding each day’s recording will be shared that same evening, with song titles, lyrics, poetic impressions, pictures, sound clips, studio gear and the like offered for a circuitous, bird’s eye view of the process as it unfolds.”
The Smashing Pumpkins’ most recent album was 2012’s Oceania. The same year the band reissued its classic 1995 album Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. — AFP Relaxnews
