The Smashing Pumpkins signed a new record deal and will release two new albums of "guitars, guitars, and more guitars" in 2015, frontman Billy Corgan announced Tuesday on the band's new website.
Through an artist services deal with BMG, the band will release "Monuments to an Elegy" and "Day for Night" via Martha’s Music/BMG. They stand to be the group's ninth and 10th studio albums and first since 2012's "Oceania."
Corgan promises a guitar-driven release, "but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic." Recording began today with production from Howard Willing, who helped engineer the band's electro-rock set "Adore" in 1998. A first single should be out by "year's end," according to Corgan.
