Following the release of excellent 2020 record Cyr, The Smashing Pumpkins have confirmed that a lot (like… a lot) more new music is on the way.
Frontman Billy Corgan took to the band's Instagram page to announce that the previously-teased 33-song Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness / Machina sequel has been written and is now in the process of being recorded, sharing a photo of a drum kit in the studio with the caption, "Starting new SP album today, the 33-song sequel to MCIS and Machina. Songs are written, lyrics too… so now it's just record, record, record."
The mammoth LP will complete a 'trilogy' of Pumpkins albums, with Billy calling it "kind of a rock opera. We feel like in many ways this completes the circle on everything we started and weren’t able to finish at that time, so we’re very excited about [it]."
