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.

Will it ever be remotely cool to $upport the boys club sausage party SP has become again?

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

Thank you for clearing this up.

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

If I didn't know the band, I'd think it said The Smashing Puvvkins. Seriously, what is up with the 'm' and 'p'.

So odd that the only Pumpkins comparison in terms of this style of artwork is Zeitgeist - are they trying to make you think of the first 'reunion' deliberately? Bad call. Name of tour is cringe inducing

I thought it was STHEMASHING PUWKINS

Plus the S at the beginning of Smashing and S at the end of Puwkins are completely different looking. Guess they didn't want the S's being two similar cuz then it would look like a broken up swastika.

It’s so unlike post-00’s Billy to make a bad call.
