The original Smashing Pumpkins are back with a bang after 18-year absence
Billy Corgan and the Pumpkins have rarely sounded so good.
Yes, we know The Smashing Pumpkins have released material since then, but this is the first time the original line-up have got together to release something new.
The founding members of the band, Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin got together in the Shangri La Studios in Malibu and recorded 'Solara' which is an absolute banger.
Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin and accompanied by longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder, this is a tune which will excite their fans the world over.
