Smashing Pumpkins to release two new albums in 2015

The band has already begun recording sessions

Smashing Pumpkins are set to release two new albums next year, according to frontman Billy Corgan. Corgan states on the band’s website that they have inked a new deal with BMG and will release Monuments To An Elegy and Day For Night, respectively.

“Recording sessions begin today, as plenty of songs have been written and ready to go,” Corgan admits. “For those interested in sound, think: ‘guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars;’ but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.”

Howard Willing, whom Corgan first started working with during the Adore sessions, is helming the boards again for both projects.

The band expects a new single to be out by the end of this year.

The band will be sharing each day’s recording sessions the same evening, with “song titles, lyrics, poetic impressions, pictures, sound clips, studio gear and the like offered for a circuitous, bird’s eye view of the process as it unfolds.”
