Smashing Pumpkins will be the musical guests on the December 11 episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!.” The band are expected to perform several songs on the show’s outdoor stage.
Smashing Pumpkins just released their new album “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.” earlier this month, but it looks like they may be planning even more new material. During a recent interview with USA Today, Billy Corgan revealed that he actually wants the band to record a Christmas album at some point.
Corgan said the following:
“We’re already talking about tour stuff for next year, so there will be more Pumpkins shows in 2019. But for me, once we get off tour, I’m either going to be doing some writing in L.A. with some friends or going back to Chicago to start writing new Smashing Pumpkins. I also have an inkling to try and get us to do a Christmas record one day, so I might try to use the Christmas spirit to put the record together in concept, even if we’re not ready to record it.”
He also added the following when asked if the effort will feature covers or original material:
“It would be a mixture. I have released two Christmas songs, and I was thinking it would be nice to re-record those in the context of the record we would make. It would be probably lean more acoustic… When I think Christmas music, I tend to think something you want to put on and sit around the tree with the kids and not rock out to. I don’t see us doing a rocking-out Christmas album.”
Smashing Pumpkins have premiered a new song titled “Knights Of Malta.” This track is from the band’s new album “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.,” which will be released on November 16.
Myrkur recently opened for Smashing Pumpkins during their shows in Casalecchio di Reno, Italy and London, UK and the band invited her onstage for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.” You can see footage of that from their October 18 show at the Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno, Italy below:
Smashing Pumpkins have premiered a new video for their song “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts).” This track is from the band’s new album “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.,” which will be released on November 16.
