have they confirmed who the bassist is? Haven't heard anything but speculation about D'arcy, Melissa, or Eric Avery.

Probably Melissa since she's already expressed interest in joining the band again.

Drummer: New Pumpkins Music 'Sounding Fantastic'

Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has broken his silence about the reunited band's new album, which, as previously reported, will feature production by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen). Still up in the air is who, if anyone, Chamberlin and Pumpkins mainman Billy Corgan are playing with in the studio.

"I'm here to tell you that great things are on track for the future," Chamberlin wrote on the Pumpkins' Myspace.com page. "As some of you know we are indeed creating music again -- music that comes from a place so pure it will burn the lies off the very souls of those who try to discount it. We have arrived at a place in our lives where truth and honesty prevail and we are creating from that place."

Last week, the band was tracking drums, which Chamberlin describes as "a bit like going to another planet for four or five or nine minutes." Following a sting with Baker, the Pumpkins are now collaborating with producer Terry Date (Soundgarden, Deftones).

"The universe has a way of letting you know that things are right by introducing people like [Baker] and Terry into the fold," Chamberlin wrote, adding that the new music is "sounding fantastic. It's all part of one big cosmic journey, in so that everyone reading this is hitching their silver chord to the Great Pumpkin Space Train!"

No release date or label affiliation has been announced for the as-yet-untitled new album. It is presumed the Pumpkins will tour in support of it sometime next year.

Smashing Pumpkins Summon 'Symphony' In Studio

The Smashing Pumpkins are more than halfway home on their first album since 2000, according to posts from drummer Jimmy Chamberlin on the group's MySpace.com site. "We have been working day and night in the studio and I am happy to say that the drums are finished!," he wrote earlier this month. "After almost a year of work, to finally sit down and listen to the drum takes, one after another, was a truly joyful experience."

Last week, he chronicled a "magnificent guitar symphony" from Billy Corgan featuring "eight guitars resonating in one big harmonic handshake. It is still ringing in my ears this morning."

His posts carefully worded to avoid any mention of song titles or acknowledgement of who, if anybody, is working with he and Corgan in the studio, Chamberlin has also thanked "the Grateful Dead, Rush [and] Billy Thorpe for their guidance in this hour of need."

"I can honestly say that this has been one of the most musically satisfying and spiritually rewarding trips I have ever been on," he added.

Produced by Roy Thomas Baker and Terry Date, the as-yet-untitled album is expected in late spring, with a tour to follow. No label affiliation has yet been announced; Corgan has released all of his post-Pumpkins work on Reprise.

I believe it will be a bit later than spring before they tour in the US. I imagine it will still be another few months before the album is entirely done. Then there was mention of them going to Europe to play a few festivals. I'd be more inclined to think that their first real tour in the US will be in the fall of '07 at the earliest.

Corgan Weighs In On New Pumpkins Album

Billy Corgan has taken to the Smashing Pumpkins' MySpace.com site to weigh in on the group's reunion album, expected out in late spring or early summer. "This year for us will see a new album of songs and a world tour of tears, and we truly look forward to playing again for fans young, old, and missed," Corgan said in a posting yesterday (Jan. 2).

"So yes, tunes are being dusted off, while others are being asked to kindly submit to an upstart millennia and all it's asking," he continued. "When we opened the lid on this music box, we were pleasantly surprised at the music that played: familiar yet unknown, welcoming but not sentimental ... and that is all we can ask."

There has still been no announcement of what label is releasing the disc, but it is likely to be Warner Bros. or Reprise, which issued Corgan's 2005 solo album "TheFutureEmbrace." It has also not been revealed who else besides Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin are now in the band.

"For many years there were private laments about opportunities missed and hearts so broken, but no more ... we have turned the page and moved on, from places and faces, names and games," Corgan said. "This age calls for resolve and certitude, and the fire within to burn ever bright. If that fire should be connected to absolutely deafening guitars, thundering drums and the melodies of snakes, then so be it!"

That is the goofiest wording in a statement I think I have ever heard. That said, bring it on.

It's amazing how he can say something without saying anything at all.

All I wanna know is if this new stuff is going to be similar in sound to that overproduced/filtered "last" album, or if it is going to be similar to the first four albums in sound.

Yeah, she dated him in the past and he actually wrote a lot the songs for Hole's last album.

Courtney's a starfucker.

They were together before she marrried Cobain and have had an up and down friendship since then. He wrote some songs on Celebrity Skin and also some for her upcoming album.

Yeah, especially someone that undeniably oozes raw sex appeal like Billy Corgan?

Oh, wait.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins to reform

D'arcy Wretzky has moved on to more productive pursuits


Ex-"Smashing Pumpkins" bassist D'arcy Wretzky is currently behind bars in Michigan -- and TMZ has learned, it's all because several horses on her farm broke free ... and ran amok in her town.

The incident occurred back in 2009. D'arcy's ex-boyfriend Jeff Khoshaba tells us ... the horses somehow got out of their enclosures. The neighbors flipped out and called the cops.

We're told D'arcy was ticketed for the crime of "Animals Running at Large" ... but she forgot to pay, and then missed four consecutive court dates ... triggering a bench warrant for her arrest.

The law finally caught up with D'arcy, who was cuffed on Tuesday. Local law enforcement sources tell us she's being held on four counts of failure to appear in court on the ticket.

She's scheduled to be released on Valentine's Day.
