Yes, The Smashing Pumpkins are recording again.

See for yourself: www.smashingpumpkins.com.

If this isn't awesome, than awesome doesn't exist.

Is it all the Pumpkins? I guess if they are actually calling themselves the Smashing Pumpkins it will be more than just Billy and Jimmy? So Iha would be back and well probably Melissa?

I'm not sure yet, but I'd guess it may be D'Arcy back instead of Melissa.

They made some excellent music, a few duds, but overall soooo good and challenging. This is indeed good news.

The most underrated band of the whole grunge era of the '90s.

Billy Corgan is a genius, pure and simple.

I never was a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins. While they have many good songs (granted, I know mostly the singles), Billy's voice gets on my nerves if I hear more than 2 of his songs in a row.

So I have no particular feelings (good or bad) about a Smashing Pumpkins reunion.
Urban Dance Squad is also coming back together. Now that's a band I want to see live again!

Can anyone actually find D'Arcy though?

I haven't heard that anyone is involved other than Billy and Jimmy. If that is true, then how is this any different than Zwan or a solo album with Jimmy as drummer? Not trying to be a naysayer, I love the Pumpkins, this just sounds more like the same stuff Billy Corgan has been doing, but using the Pumpkin name as a publicity stunt.

But I guess the Pumpkins were always almost a solo outfit for Billy anyway, especially Siamese Dream where he rerecorded most of the bass and guitar parts and just left Jimmy's drumming alone. Maybe this will now mean that Billy will return to the type of music he does best, instead of the new stuff he tried recently.

Sorry, big ramble, just not sure what to think about this. I'll reserve judgement until I hear something.

See if it was just Billy and Jimmy, I don't think they would be calling this a Pumpkin's album!
