What...using two different fonts?

Nah just kidding

It's the best looking album/single cover though since Machina.

Ugh, looks stupid to me. I feel like I have been following a different band than everyone else. SP to me has always been this massively angry and depressed thing. Even during Gish and SD. This is just a dumb title and the imagery is already cringe-worthy.

Terrible artwork, terrible name. Hope it’s just for the tour not an album cover.

MCIS, Adore, and Machina had decent art direction to me. Really enjoyed how photo-heavy Aeroplane was

lol yes, this silly tour name is definitely a reliable portent of bad things for a band that sold what like 15 million copies of an album called uhhh *checks notes* Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness

I mean, I think the tour will be shit too, but ragging on Bill for giving things dumb pretentious names is like hacking on a Star Wars movie for not being realistic.

Could be the name of tour / single combo. Wouldn't say the album is anywhere near ready yet.

I think a song called "Shiny and oh so Bright" might be interesting - major chords, "Today"-esque, dreamy and positive.

Goddamn it we need a bit of positivity at the moment.

I like the color scheme and the idea to go with art deco, but the top font ("The Smashing Pumpkins") is a mess, and the artwork looks like little effort went into it.

"Shiny and oh so bright" doesn't sound like a Smashing Pumpkins phrase to me. It sounds like cheap irony, which doesn't fit the body of work. Strange choice if you want to go for nostalgia.

Horrible name. Reminds me of that 'Shamrocks' thing from 2013

I do hope a new song drops at noon though, if only for some new JC parts

For a moment there I thought it was figuratively the worst you could imagine.

Thank you for clearing this up.

Who would write an elegy to a monument? Why not write the elegy to the thing or person that is being monumentalized?

I like the art deco style, but it doesn't really scream 90s nostalgia if that's what this tour is about.

It does seem Zeitgeisty, or maybe Zero singley.

This is just a copy/paste effort of art-deco tropes, thrown together with little meaning or thought. It also vaguely resembles Nazi posters/art from the '30s, promoting the master race, which is a great way to get your popularity up.







Then there's the MS Paint SP heart, what's up with that?

That modernized SP logo looks like poop. Would have been better to just use the regular SP heart logo and perhaps the MCIS era font for the name if this is Billy's big reunion moneymaker. This looks lame to me. Terrible tour/song name and uninspired artwork. The Billy Corgan Show, round 4? What the hell round are we in now?

Dull And Oh So Dark is more like it

That first poster is not a Nazi poster. It's from a German airline, a company. Nazis used some art deco, so did many others, and it's all across the US. The most obvious reference here is "Wings of the Republic", which you can see in several places.

the Deutsche Lufthansa was as business directly operating for Dolfy Hitler, so you got that part wrong. that is nazi era Deutsche Lufthansa aesthetic. (what whywontyoulisten posted.)
http://www.spiegel.de/kultur/tv/luft...-a-709913.html

and this tour poster looks to my Euro-eyes like Leni Riefenstahl with less taste done by a hack designer. you can call it whatever you want, though. HailBolly for example.

Lufthansa was a major German company (founded before the Third Reich) and as such became deeply involved with the government. But the look of the poster is actually very American. Search for "Wings of the Republic".
