The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995's 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. The band has released seven additional studio albums: Adore, Machina/The Machines Of God, Machina II/The Friends And Enemies Of Modern Music, Zeitgeist, Oceania, Monuments To An Elegy and their last full-length, Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol 1/No Past, No Future, No Sun, with over 30 million physical albums sold. The multiple Grammy, MTV VMA and American Music Award winning band remains an undenaible force in alternative rock.
The Smashing Pumpkins returned with two new tracks, "Cyr" and "The Colour Of Love", out on Sumerian Records. Recorded in Chicago and produced by Billy Corgan, the new tracks came with the news of a forthcoming studio album in the works with founding members Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, with longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
"CYR is dystopic folly," frontman Billy Corgan reveals. "One soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn't possible with faith."
Having recently signed to Sumerian Records, CEO and founder Ash Avildsen reveals "The Smashing Pumpkins are one of the most influential, iconic and timeless bands of all time. They've played a huge part in my life and I can say the same for so many others in the Sumerian family. This is a colossal moment for the label but most importantly, it's the dawn of a new decade of Smashing Pumpkins music."
