Three-Fourths Of The Classic Smashing Pumpkins Lineup Were Recently Hanging Out In The Studio

There has been a lot of rumors about a possible reunion of the classic Smashing Pumpkins lineup, and now Billy Corgan has added fuel to the fire by posting a photo of him hanging out with James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin in the studio. This isn’t too big of a surprise, considering Chamberlin has performed with Corgan quite a bit over the last few years, and the fact that Iha has made a few guest appearances as well. The only member not present is D’Arcy Wretzky, but she has been in contact with Corgan in recent times.

Original Candlebox Lineup To Perform Debut Album In Full At Special Seattle, WA Show

Candlebox’s original lineup, featuring Peter Klett, Bardi Martin, Kevin Martin, and Scott Mercado, will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album by performing it in full at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA on July 21. The band will also be joined by special guests SweetWater and Green Apple Quick Step.

Kevin Martin said the following:

“I can’t believe its been 25 years, it seems like yesterday we were playing the 1st of 3 sold out shows at the Paramount and to be able to come back 25 years later to that same magical venue to play these songs for our fans is truly overwhelming and humbling. I don’t think any of us ever thought that we had made a record that would have such a profound affect on so many. I mean, we were proud of it of course and we loved what we had created but to think that it was going to reach so many people and that it was still going to be as impactful 25 years later, no way. I think we are all amazed that its 25 years old, very humbling for sure and I couldn’t be more grateful that our fans still love what we do all these years later.”

Klett also commented:

“I’m truly looking forward to getting back together with the guys where it started all those years ago. Playing the songs that literally changed our lives and continue to do so and to be able to play them in the The Paramount with our fans there is going to be amazing!”

Bardi Martin added:

“It is amazing, I mean, if you’d have asked me in 1993 if I thought we’d be playing this album for our fans in 25 years I dont know how i would have responded. I think i would probably have said “I hope so” but really I’m just amazed and cannot wait to celebrate these past 25 years with the guys and the fans!”

Mercado commented as well:

“I’m so stoked to be reuniting with the 3 guys that changed my life immeasurably and presented the most magical moments I’ll ever experience on this Earth. I love these guys and can’t wait to play the songs from the album that catapulted our musical careers.”
