Two Pumpkins fell off the van on their way to L.A., are currently staying in the Pacific Ocean.

James and D'arcy aren't involved. This is exactly the same thing that happened when Billy and Jimmy recorded Zeitgeist. Instead of just coming out and admitting James and D'arcy weren't there, Billy and Jimmy post updates from the studio (on Instagram this time instead of MySpace) willfully ignoring the elephant in the room of who will be involved. If James and/or D'arcy were taking part in whatever is going on in L.A., Billy would be promoting it non-stop.

With Zeitgeist and the band coming back, Billy could have just avoided the disappointment by saying "James and D'arcy aren't coming back, but we're excited to move forward with the band." Instead, we had to learn James wasn't in the band through a one paragraph press release he wrote in Rolling Stone and comments from Linda Strawberry on Netphoria.

Similarly, if Billy just came out and said, "hey, these are songs for a solo album," or "Jimmy and I are recording demos for the next Smashing Pumpkins album. James and D'arcy aren't here now, but maybe they will have some parts of the final songs," or "D'arcy and James do not want to be a part of the studio band now, but the possibility remains that we may play shows together down the road," or literally any quick explanation, it would avoid the inevitable disappointment we feel when another BC/JC album arrives.

I suppose it remains possible that James and D'arcy could come in further in the process (when the band starts recording final songs), or might contribute pieces like James did on Ogilala, but it would still be best for Billy and Jimmy to just come forward with what they are doing and what we can expect.

Assuming it is SP - they both appear to be using Smashng Pumpkins tags.

I'm thinking this is is a very likely scenario, but I don't know why they hell they'd relocate to LA apart from having James present though. Makes way more sense for them to come to him rather than having him relocate to Chicago between APC tour legs.

Maybe Bill just doesn't want to announce anything yet until all everything's ready, including the album, and all four of them are in the same room. He's got a bad history of announcing announcements after all.

With the whole "Dust and Gold" thing plus BC/JC the most accurate band name to put this out under would be Zwan.

It very well might not be a Smashing Pumpkins album. As others have pointed out, however, Billy has marked a few of these posts Smashing Pumpkins, and if Billy was working on a solo album, he would said that already (like he did with Ogilala, TheFutureEmbrace, and the solo album he recorded in Nashville). In 2016, Billy posted that video where he said that he was in contact with Jimmy, D'arcy, and James for the first time since 1999. In the video, he mentioned he would be totally transparent with all Smashing Pumpkins activities moving forward. It does seem possible he decided to wait until plans finalize to make an announcement, but it would not be hard for him to just say that.

I wouldn't read too much into the hashtag. Bill doesn't care anymore, whatever the name it's all Pumpkins to him.

Here's another reason for the new song called "Route 666". Picture 2 of the row shows the sign of the west end of the Route 66 in Santa Monica:

OK - back to conspiracy theorizing - in the Jimmy shot up there, is it just me, or is the name on the parking spot to the right of Rod's blurred?

Good research there: definitely the parking lot. So, that settles that - just need to have somebody hang out in that parking lot 24/7 until we figure out the current happenings. There we go!

It's kind of crossed out. But it just says Jimmy Chamberlain
