The Smashing Pumpkins rumour mill has been working overtime as late, with frontman Billy Corgan seemingly hinting that the veteran alt-rockers have reunited and are recording with Rick Rubin. It seems that we might finally learn what they’re up to, since the group have launched a countdown clock on their website.
The countdown clock is ticking down to a time on Thursday afternoon. Beyond that, there’s absolutely no information on the website — just the band’s heart logo and an invitation to join their mailing list. Check it out here.
What’s coming up Thursday — an announcement about a new album, a tour, or something else entirely? We’ll have to wait and see what they have planned, but whatever the case, reports have suggested that original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky won’t be taking part (although the validity Wretzky’s quotes has been questioned). Stay tuned for all to be revealed soon.
