Tommy Lee is tracking all 9 drum tracks on the new The Smashing Pumpkins album. You didn’t read this wrong, I’m not fucked up right now. This is what’s happening according to Corgan’s post on the bands website.
“Here’s a shot from the mission out west,” Corgan wrote “Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the Smashing Pumpkins album. Shockla-locka-boom.”
The new album, Monuments To An Elegy is supposedly nearing it’s completion. But for reasons unbeknownst to me, we shouldn’t expect it’s release until next year.
But it gets even weirder (though we all know Corgan’s no stranger to weird). They plan to release 2 albums in 2015! The second titled Day For Night, though I have no details about Lee’s involvement in that.
Corgan explained the new albums as, “‘guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars;’ but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.”
