Biography

The Smashing Pumpkins are an American alternative rock band from Chicago, formed in 1988 by frontman Billy Corgan (lead vocals, lead guitar) and James Iha (rhythm guitar).

Disavowing the punk rock roots of many of their alt-rock contemporaries, The Smashing Pumpkins have a diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of gothic rock, heavy metal, dream pop, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, shoegazing, and electronica in later recordings.

Billy Corgan is the group’s primary songwriter—his grand musical ambitions and cathartic lyrics have shaped the band’s albums and songs, which have been described as “anguished, bruised reports from Billy Corgan’s nightmare-land”.

The Smashing Pumpkins broke into the musical mainstream with their second album, 1993’s Siamese Dream. The group built its audience with extensive touring and their 1995 follow-up, the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.

With 20 million albums sold in the United States alone, The Smashing Pumpkins was one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s. However, internal fighting, drug use, and diminishing record sales led to a 2000 break-up.

In 2006, Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin reconvened to record a new Smashing Pumpkins album, Zeitgeist. The band toured with a rotating lineup of between five and nine musicians through much of 2007 and 2008 with new member Jeff Schroeder before Chamberlin left the band in early 2009.

New drummer Mike Byrne and bassist Nicole Fiorentino solidified a new lineup with Corgan and Schroeder, toured through much of 2010 and 2011, recorded the 2009’s album Teargarden by Kaleidyscope and the 2012’s one Oceania.

Although Mike Byrne and Nicole Fiorentino departed the band in early 2014, Bill Corgan announced that the next two albums, Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night, will be released by 2015.
