The Frontier Touring Company are thrilled to announce the return of The Smashing Pumpkins to Australia this October for shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan will be joined on stage by drummer Mike Byrne, bassist Nicole Fiorentino and guitarist Jeff Schroeder – currently touted by the media as the best Smashing Pumpkins reincarnation yet.
Their most recent work is Teargarden by Kaleidyscope—an in-progress 44-song work, with songs being issued online one at a time for free (4-song physical EPs will be made available as the songs are released).

‘By and large, Smashing Pumpkins are what they were: Mr. Corgan’s platform for tormented thoughts and invincible guitar…The new Smashing Pumpkins share Mr. Corgan’s sense of dynamics.’ – The New York Times
