Billy Corgan is taking his latest Smashing Pumpkins ensemble out on the road this October, kicking things off at Los Angeles' Wiltern and wrapping things up at the Tower Theatre in Philly.
The alternative rock vanguard is expected to perform songs from their eighth, still-in-progress album, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope. So far, 10 of the 44 tracks that make the album have been released.
In a very Nolan-esque move, the boundary-pushing 90s hero said, in April, that Teargarden by Kaleidyscope will house an "album within an album" called Oceania. That album, which Corgan called "standard issue", is supposed to arrive in September as part of the TxK series.
We aren't holding our breath for the album(s), but we're eying one of the dates below:
