SP Record Club, OCEANIA Album & Tour News

Article written by Arthur van Pelt

The hardcore fans, and also the average fans, will not have missed it: Smashing Pumpkins recently started the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club. Go to SmashingPumpkins.com to find out more. And don’t forget to search for the somewhat “hidden” download for another song, Geek U.S.A. – Suicide Kiss No Vox demo!

Next to that, Billy Corgan just announced a few hours ago on Twitter that the new album is ready. “Oceania is done… I am so proud of this record, and this band”. In the meantime, the band also figured out a rather extensive US and EU tour to try out the new songs of Oceania. The tour is called “The Other Side Of The Kaleidyscope”, and the new songs will be mixed with some Greatest Hits from the past. These are the dates, as published on the tourpage of the website of the band.
