Second album to be released by Smashing Pumpkins in 2015. This is Day for Night, which will follow the release of Moments to An Elegy. Both albums are going to be released through BMG.
Like always, Corgan has explained both of the albums as guitar-driven.
Smashing Pumpkins have launched a brand new website called the Panopticon. There, the band has shared news of two new albums, which they'll release in 2015 through BMG. They're titled Monuments to An Elegy and Day for Night. Per the post, "recording sessions begin today" with a single out this year. The records will be produced by Howard Willing (who worked with the band on 1998's Adore).
"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," Billy Corgan writes in the post.
Corgan also elaborated on how their new website will help document the recording process:
Additionally, this stands as the initial post on a new nexus: The Panopticon, which through its simplicity should better address the speed of modern life. A continuing feature, items regarding each day’s recording will be shared that 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.
