Earlier this week, the band had their initially announced dates in London, New York and Paris sell out instantly. The band is touring in support of their new albumMonuments to an Elegy, available December 9. The band also informed fans to look for additional dates to be added soon in other select markets.
Joining The Smashing Pumpkins on this special tour are Mark Stoermer (The Killers) on bass and Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine) on drums. Stoemer and Wilk will also join The Smashing Pumpkins playing a special outdoor stage performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday December 10th.
The Smashing Pumpkins were also recently announced as headliners for South American Lollapalooza Festival dates which include March 14/15 in Santiago, Chile, March 21/22 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and March 28/29 in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Anticipation and praise already surround the December 9th release of Monuments to an Elegy, with Huffington Post calling it “the band’s super-album.” Yesterday, Vice.com premiered the new track, “Tiberius” which they called “intimate” and “expansive” while Noisey.com declared the track “sounds like a return to form—a nod to the beloved Pumpkins sound of old with a modern twist.” Monuments To An Elegy features Tommy Lee (Motley Cruë) on drums and was recorded in Chicago. The album is produced by Howard Willing, along with Corgan and Schroeder. Monuments to an Elegy is “an album within an album,” part of their ongoing work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope (with Day For Night as the project’s last work).
