Billy Corgan To Appear This Evening on Piers Morgan Tonight

The Smashing Pumpkins have released their seventh studio album Oceania today, June 19th.  Part of their 44-song work-in-progress Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, Oceania is “an album within an album” and was created by the band as an immersive album experience for listeners.  All 13 tracks premiered simultaneously to fans and critics alike the week before release, with no specific single chosen to herald the new album.

Oceania 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 album is streaming in full at SPOceania.com and from SmashingPumpkins.com, where fans can sign up for the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club for the latest news and updates. Oceania is available now, in stores and online (iTunes / Amazon / SP.com).  Don’t miss Billy Corgan’s interview about the new record on Piers Morgan Tonight, which airs this evening at 9 pm EST on CNN.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
