The Pumpkins, comprised now of original vocalist/guitarist Billy Corgan and drummer Chamberlin, are expected to be active on the road throughout the summer in support of their comeback album, due in late spring or early summer.
"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 wrote earlier this month on the band's MySpace.com site.
