Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has announced that his band is gearing up to release not one but two new albums in 2015.
“Pleased to announce that I’ve just inked a new record deal with BMG,” Corgan wrote on the band’s website on Mar. 25, the same day he said the group was beginning to record. Corgan went on to write that the two albums would be titled Monuments To An Elegy and Day For Night and expanded on what he envisioned for the albums’ sound: “For those interested in sound, think: ‘guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars’; but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.”
Monuments To An Elegy, which will be the first of the two albums, and Day For Night will both be produced by Howard Willing, an assistant on 1998’s Adore. The two albums will be the first Pumpkins’ releases since 2012’s Oceania and with most of the songs already written and ready to go, according to Corgan, the band hopes to have a single out by the end of the year.
