Smashing Pumpkins planning to release two new EPs, says Billy CorganCredit: Olivia Bee Last month, Billy Corgan shared the titles of eight new songs he was working on with The Smashing Pumpkins. Now, he's revealed plans to release them. According to a new Instagram post from Corgan, the reunited alt-rock veterans will be releasing the tracks over two four-song EPs. Corgan adds that the first new single from the band is due out in May. If that forecast holds true, you'll be able to listen to a new Pumpkins song before the band kicks off their Shiny and Oh So Bright reunion tour in July. The band's lineup for the tour consists of original members Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, but not bassist D'arcy Wretzky. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
