I am all for this happening, but I am sad that D'arcy won't be a part of it. New photos show a band lineup that includes Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, James Iha, and-taking D'arcy's place-Jeff Schroeder. I'm still on board, though! Via AlternativePress:
Smashing Pumpkins are currently recording a comeback album in LA with producer Rick Rubin, with Billy Corgan confirming the news on Instagram with a throwback photo of himself.
"I share a window (curated as it is) into my crazy life," Corgan captioned the Instagram post. "As an example, we are currently in the studio with Rick Rubin. But unless I show you a picture of Rick sitting Buddha-like at a mixing desk, you probably wouldn’t know that.
"Or when I, in a very naive way, post a shot with a needle in my arm and ramble on about making peace with God and time left on dear ‘ol Earth, it sent some signal to friends and associates alike that I was sick or wanted other’s sympathy... Because we live now in a world where perception often outweighs reality, and that's fine. So to that, here's a new pic I just took of me with my sandy-brown, curly hair flowing in the studio breeze."
