Fresh from the release of their latest album Oceania, The Smashing Pumpkins are back in the UK this summer and will be playing three dates this July culminating with a huge show at London's Wembley Arena.
The Smashing Pumpkins have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history and sold over 30 million albums.
Their latest album 'Oceania' marked their first full album since 2007's Zeitgeist and was recorded at singer/guitarist Billy Corgan's private studio in Chicago with his bandmates: guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist/vocalist Nicole Fiorentino.
The powerful 13-song collection (see track listing below) was produced by Corgan and Bjorn Thorsrud and mixed by David Bottrill. Marking The Smashing Pumpkins' 7th studio record, it is 'an album within an album,' part of their 44-song work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope. 'Oceania' was created by the band as a true album experience for listeners to fully immerse themselves in the songs and musical performances.
The Smashing Pumpkins will be coming to the following venues this summer:
Monday 1st Manchester Academy
Tuesday 2nd Glasgow O2 Academy
Monday 22nd London Wembley Arena
