Default Has their been any updates regarding SP lately?

Weren't they supposed to tour this year?

I know Billy's got some solo thing coming out, but has their been any news regarding SP at all?

The silence has to be a good sign that a reunions getting ironed out. Lord knows that normally Billy can't help himself from hyping up any random idea that pops into his mind. I'm feeling like something bigs about to go down.

SP is dead and buried and the reunion will never work out due to scheduling problems and intermittent ego flare-ups

listen to Royal Blood instead

Royal Blood sounds like every indie hipster modern popular rock band rolled into one... Muse meets The White Stripes meets Queens Of The Stone Age without any of the originality. I get why they're so popular because they are not challenging and sound so familiar.

Wow Royal Blood sound like some basic shit. How can you have any stage presence or a full sound with two people?

No activities regarding the SMASHING PUMPKINS.

On his birthday trainride Billy told his solo record to come out in September. A week ago, when someone asked him at the ZuZu's, he said this fall.
According to David Lagana a solo tour on it would follow 2018.

I distinctly recall the same thing being said of Stone Temple Pilots, but upon further review, they did have their own originality within the genre.

I know nothing of this Royal Blood group, but the guy has got some moxie and a nice voice, so its a good start. Considering the current standard for bass/drum duo's is 21 Pilots, these boys have a ways to go just yet.

Nope, no news since they broke up in 2000, still waiting for the Metro DVD, but complete silence from Corgan for 17 years.

yeah, I'm hoping this is taking priority. If he didn't bring out albums for 5-10 years, did a Kate Bush (ie: raised a child then brought out an amazing record) I'd be fine with that.

So... go Billy....Raise the child. Come back in a decade with awesome music. Make us care again.* **


*don't forget to release the machina boxset in the meantime.

While some of you guys still dream of the original PUMPKINS reunion BILLY is already working on another solo album.
He also said...
At the ZuZu's, these days.

Maybe his 50><50 project?

It worked once didn't it...

I think it'd be funny if he announced a reunion of a band that he's been performing as for 10 years now... shows you how much of a cash cow simply the word "reunion" is with the media.

Just wanted to chime in and say I don't get the royal blood hype. Sound boring af to my ears. Apparently I'm supposed to go "wowee" whenever some dude who worships josh homme decides to sing regular over reheated sabbath riffs? Because rock needs saving or someshit? Fuck that, go do something original pls

Another reason for the delay of Billy's next record could be:

He's changed the management again. (NOT his tour manager Doug...)
