The Smashing Pumpkins Announce New Album

Realizing this isn't the most popular thing to admit, I'm a pretty big fan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness were the shoegaze/dream pop answers to grunge, and even if Billy Corgan bordered on being tone deaf, he made his weird vocals work. Still, much like it's difficult to accept the Shins as a discrete entity these days when James Mercer is the only remaining member, it's hard to believe that such a thing as "the Smashing Pumpkins" still exists when Billy Corgan is the only remaining original member of the band. Regardless, the "band's" new album, Oceania, is due out 6/18. While this could end up being great like Port of Morrow, our money is that it's going to end up more like Chinese Democracy.
