Billy Corgan Says Smashing Pumpkins’ “Melon Collie And The Infinite Sadness”/“Machina“ Sequel Will Be A 33-Song Rock Opera

Smashing Pumpkins recently revealed that they were planning to celebrate the 25th anniversary of “Melon Collie And The Infinite Sadness” by releasing a conceptual follow-up to that album and “Machina/The Machines Of God.“ Now, Billy Corgan has offered more information on the project, saying it will be a 33-song rock opera.

Corgan said the following:

“It’s a sequel to Melon Collie… and Machina. We’re currently working a 33-song open. Basically, if you want to call it anything else, it’s kind of a rock opera and it’s being written from the ground up as that.”

“We’re already working on that and we already have all 33 of the songs. We’re hard at work and I’ve been in the studio right now with Jimmy [Chamberlin] working out all the drum stuff.”

He continued:

“We feel like in many ways this completes the circle on everything we started and weren’t able to finish at that time, so we’re very excited about that.”

Corgan also added that the band are still planning a “full-on arena tour” as well. He said the following about his hopes for future shows:

“My dream, as I’ve said to the band internally, is that we’ll eventually be able to stage all three albums as a show. You can call it Broadway, you can call it full production, whatever you want, so my dream is that we’ll be able to do a Mellon Collie show full production, a Machina show full production and ultimately the album we’re working on now. It’ll be kind of like a living film.”

Prior to all this, Smashing Pumpkins will be releasing a new double album titled “Cyr” on November 27.
