The Smashing Pumpkins – “Spellbinding”

The Smashing Pumpkins – “Spellbinding”

The Smashing Pumpkins have been rolling out their new rock opera album ATUM in three acts. The first act came out in November, the second in January, and they’ve just announced that the third and final part of the album will be released on May 5. Today, they’ve shared the previously unreleased “Spellbinding” from that last act of ATUM.

The band has also announced the North American leg of their The World Is A Vampire Tour, which kicked off in Mexico earlier this month and will head to Australia in April. The NA tour dates will start in Las Vegas this summer. Smashing Pumpkins will spend the first half of the tour with Stone Temple Pilots, and then they’ll be joined by Interpol for the second half.

“I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong,” Billy Corgan said of the tour in a statement. “That’s what The World Is A Vampire is about. Bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.”
