Smashing Pumpkins Member Finally Reveals What Reunited Band Will Do In 2018


darthjul posted the following on the forums, claiming that Jimmy Chamberlin said that the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup would reunite to record new material next year:


So I’m at the London Drum Show today to see JC perform. Being the mad-schools JC fan I am I rock up UBER early to be front and centre. JC is there, setting up his Sakae kit with some dudes in London Drum Show t-shirts.

Drum show guy asks about the Pumpkins.

JC says they’re recording next year.

Drum show guy clarifies – you mean the Complex?

JC say no man, the Pumpkins. Original line up.

* mind-splosion *


PS. Who fuckin’ knows if this will happen, there’s a million reasons it could get de-railed but I think that’s about as definitive as you can get at this stage.

Billy Corgan stated just a couple of days ago on the Joe Rogan Experience that he hoped to see the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup tour in 2018.

“I’m going to go record another acoustic album, then hopefully next year there will be a Pumpkins tour. Our fingers are crossed.”

Rogan said that a reunion tour would be ‘beautiful.’ An original Smashing Pumpkins lineup reunion has been heavily rumored since Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin reunited for three performances in spring 2016.

    Lmao man what the hell is wrong with you pulling random comments off NETPHORIA of all places, and making click-bait articles out of them? If you would waited 24 hours for the audio to be posted you could have confirmed Jimmy didn’t even say this.

    • Alternative Nation

      Re-read the story. The fan says he saw Jimmy talking to the guys as he was setting up his kit BEFORE any sort of on stage performance/Q&A took place. In the Q&A Jimmy was vaguer, it appears he was more open during a private conversation.

    They’re going to play some festivals. Not exactly shocking. They’ve been out there lobbying for slots for a while now.

        We live on Stone’s planet. He didn’t start playing guitar until 15 & look what he wrote before 30. Incredible.
