We were supposed to have a big announcement yesterday (Monday the 24th) from the Smashing Pumpkins but it came and went without anything being said. They certainly made up for it today.

Billy Corgan told the world that there will be 2 new Smashing Pumpkins records coming out in 2015, Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night, which they started the recording for both today. They are going to release the first song by the year's end.

Billy went on to talk about how there will be regular updates in the form of blogs, videos, photos, everything they can share will be at the new Smashing Pumpkins website, The Panopticon, which you can go to by clicking here.

By the way, I looked up what The Panopticon is. It's an institutional building designed in the 18th century that allows one person to watch all the people inside. Where did Billy dig that up from?!
