The long-rumored Smashing Pumpkins reunion is finally a go, sans D’arcy Wretzky. A Rick Rubin-produced album is reportedly on the way, and now the band have launched a countdown clock (along with a mailing list signup) on their official website. Are they announcing a tour? An album? Both? Who knows, but I guess we’ll find out in five days, which is when the countdown is set to expire.
They’ve also launched a promotion involving an ice cream truck. Notably, the video for Siamese Dream’s “Today” had an ice cream truck.
