Smashing Pumpkins have shared a new official photo of their reunion line-up – as well as teasing exciting things for their upcoming tour.

The alt-rock veterans are back, with frontman Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin from the original line-up, joined by longtime recent collaborator Jeff Schroeder. Original bassist D’Arcy Wretsky is not taking part, as an ugly feud continues to unfold.

After recently announcing a 2018 tour to play material from their first five albums (as well as reuniting the girls from the ‘Siamese Dream’ sleeve to recreate the iconic photo), this week sees the Pumpkins return to the studio to add the finishing touches to their Rick Rubin-produced comeback album.

To mark progress, the band have shared the below promo photo, telling fans: “Shiny And Oh So Bright 2018 – “This show and staging will be unlike any we’ve ever done, and will feature a set unlike any we’ve ever played. For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang.”

Fans have also grown excited after Corgan shared a classic setlist from a gig in 1995 – whetting their appetites for the return of classic material.

Yesterday also saw Corgan share the titles of eight new Smashing Pumpkins songs: ‘Alienation’, ‘Travels’, ‘Silvery Sometimes’, ‘Solara’, ‘With Sympathy’, ‘Marchin’ On’, ‘Knights of Malta’, ‘Seek And You Shall Destroy’.

This month saw Wretsky make headlines after accusing Corgan of ‘manipulation‘ and slamming him as ‘insufferable‘. The Pumpkins have since issued a statement, claiming that Wretsky was invited to be involved in the band’s return, but turned down the offer at every turn.

It is believed that further world tour dates will be announced in the months ahead.
