Chicago’s legendary alt rockers The Smashing Pumpkins have announced details of their upcoming eighth studio album Monuments To an Elegy out 8th December via Martha’s Music/BMG. Stream the first single “Being Beige” above. The title of the song is apt.
The album will be their first since 2012’s Oceania, which was seen as many as a return to form for Billy Corgan after the underwhelming response to the majority of his material since 1998 Pumpkins record Adore. The album was produced by Howard Willing, Corgan and guitarist Jeff Schroeder and features Tommy Lee of Motley Crue on drums. Monuments to an Elegy is “an album within an album”, part of their ongoing work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope (with upcoming ninth album Day For Night as the project’s last work).
