FEATURING FOUNDING MEMBERS BILLY CORGAN, JAMES IHA, JIMMY CHAMBERLIN, WITH GUITARIST JEFF SCHROEDER
Legendary GRAMMY® Award-winning alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins continue to tease their highly anticipated, Billy Corgan-produced double-album CYR, with two new tracks; Wyttch and Ramona. The latter comes with an official music video.
Historically dynamic, Wyttch delves into the band’s heavier and darker leanings, serving as a welcomed reminder why so many subscribe to The Smashing Pumpkins’ continual innovation and unwillingness to remain the same or be pegged into one genre or era. Listen to Wyttch HERE.
Ahead of their Friday, November 27 double-album release, also comes Ramona [listen HERE], a gentler, synth-soaked track accompanied with an official music video directed by Linda Strawberry and featuring founding band-members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The video is a surreal gothic-western inspired love-story. Watch HERE.
