Smashing Pumpkins Finish New Album

During a recent interview with Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio, Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder revealed that the band have finished their new album. As previously reported, the conceptual effort will be a 33-track follow-up to “Melon Collie And The Infinite Sadness” and “Machina/The Machines Of God.“

Schroeder said the following while discussing the group’s upcoming tour:

“This is our first extended tour in such a long time, so (we’re) really excited about that. I’ve been working on the set at home, and there are going to be a lot of good surprises for the fans out there for that. I think the approach to this tour is- we’re calling it Rock Invasion 2, which I can’t remember when the first one was, somewhere in the early-’90s. It’s going to be, basically, I think our reaction is very similar to yours, Anne, like, ‘Where are the guitars? Come to our show, and you’ll find the guitars!’ We’re going to be rocking hard. I can’t say too much, but we’re going to have some pretty exciting announcements at some point during the tour, as well, pertaining to the rest of the year, so it’s a really exciting time for us. I’m just excited to be doing what I do, which is play guitar and perform.”

He also added the following when asked about new music:

“Yeah, we do. So, that’s why I said I think there will be some announcements soon in regards to things like that and stuff. Nothing I can give details on quite yet, but yeah, we finished that big, epic album we were working on.”

Petke and Fryer commented:

“Several weeks ago, a humanitarian catastrophe of colossal proportions began to unfold before our very eyes. Like millions of others around the world, my friend John Fryer and I found ourselves overwhelmed with waves of shock, intense anger, and profound sadness as we watched the horrific events in Eastern Europe.

The day the Ukrainian invasion began, our hearts began to ache, and they haven’t stopped since. They are hurting for everyone whose lives and well-being are being endangered; from the victims of the bombings to the thousands of Russians protestors who have already been arrested, to the millions of displaced people, to the inexperienced Russian conscripts who find themselves being used as ‘cannon fodder’ in a war they never wanted.

From those intense feelings, an idea was born. An idea that was inspired by Bob Geldof’s Live Aid concerts in the ’80s, and fed by our intense desire to be able to actively help our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

The end result is ‘Come Together (We Will Stop You)‘ by Lifeline International; a cover of ‘Come Together‘ by The Beatles, featuring performances from current and former members of bands such as Faith No More, Stabbing Westward, Rammstein, Filter, The Hardkiss (Ukraine), Revolting Cocks, Pigface, The Joy Thieves, Agnostic Front, Basement Jaxx, Gravity Kills, The Cassandra Complex, Mesh, blackcarburning, Deathline International, Vaselyne, and Black Needle Noise to raise money and awareness for the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

Our number one goal for ‘Come Together (We Will Stop You)‘ is to directly and quickly help the people who need it the most. One of the most crucial parts of that process is ensuring that every last dollar that we raise is used properly, which is why we have chosen to donate 100% of the proceeds to UNICEF. Not only are they a long-standing organization that people already know and trust, but they are famously transparent when it comes to the money that passes through their organization. We have been in touch with them, and we’re pleased to report that we can designate every last dollar raised specifically for the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

Keeping this affordable is also important to us, so the minimum donation is only $1. But because the cause is so important, we are actively encouraging everyone to donate up to their comfort level.

Let’s ALL ‘Come Together‘ and show the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe that we hear them and that we truly care.

Christian and John”
