DOUBLE ALBUM, TITLED ‘CYR’ TO BE RELEASED ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27 VIA SUMERIAN RECORDS – PRE-ORDER/SAVE
FEATURING FOUNDING MEMBERS BILLY CORGAN, JAMES IHA, JIMMY CHAMBERLIN, WITH GUITARIST JEFF SCHROEDER
Legendary GRAMMY® Award-winning band The Smashing Pumpkins have revealed their Charlotte Kemp Muhl-directed music video ‘Wyttch,’ taken from their forthcoming eleventh studio album CYR, out Friday, November 27.
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.
CYR features 20 tracks produced by front-man Billy Corgan and recorded in Chicago, and features founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
In other news, to commemorate its 25th year anniversary, the band revealed exclusive details on their forthcoming 33-track sequel to the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album, as well as Machina; the third in a trilogy of expansive and conceptual works underway. They also teased a Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness world arena tour announcement to come in 2021. Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin spoke to Daniel P Carter and answered fan questions via a virtual live-streamed chat on album’s anniversary. Watch HERE.
