The Smashing Pumpkins recently sat down with Zane Lowe for an exclusive interview on Beats 1 on Apple Music to discuss reuniting, their new LP, touring together for the first time in 18 years, and more. Tune in to hear the conversation in full on Monday, 9/17 at 10:00a PST at apple.co/B1_ZaneLive

Earlier this summer, the newly reformed lineup shared the first glimpse of their new music with the LP’s lead single "Solara". "Solara" is available now to stream and download now via all digital services. The track’s dreamlike music video was directed by Nick Koenig and expands on the theatrics of the band's catalog of iconic music videos. Watch it HERE

Last week, The Smashing Pumpkins wrapped their monumental Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, which sold over 300,000 tickets across North America and sold-out arenas including The Forum, United Center, and  Madison Square Garden. Produced by Live Nation, the tour was the band’s first in nearly two decades to feature Corgan, Chamberlin, and Iha, alongside Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates, and keyboardist Katie Cole. Critics were quick to praise the tour’s opening dates as “a massive gift to their fans” (Uproxx), “a welcome reminder of why those early albums resonated in the first place” (SPIN), and “an unforgettably rewarding and often spectacular odyssey” (Forbes).  

This fall, the band will perform in London, UK, and Bologna, IT, before returning to Chicago, IL for a special 30th anniversary series performance for WKQX’s The Nights We Stole Christmas. Tickets for the band’s upcoming live dates are available HERE.    

Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995's 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.

GRAVE DIGGER – Release Music Video For “The Power Of Metal”

New Album The Living Dead OUT NOW!
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
German heavy metal legends GRAVE DIGGER released the official video for “The Power Of Metal” off their new album The Living Dead!


Chris Boltendahl on the new single:

„It’s a song about metal, about a life in the underground, about a life which is different. To be a metalhead is the greatest gift on earth – from the day you heard the first notes of a Judas Priest or Iron Maiden song, you´re addicted to this kind of music! The love and passion for metal makes you to a special person and the power of metal can heal. It makes you stronger and gives you a better life.”
