Smashing Pumpkins front-man Billy Corgan tweeted that he's officially starting work on the followup to the 2012 album, Oceania. But, he also told MTV that he was doing that last September. So, who knows? The Pumpkins will perform in Charlotte on May 8th.
In a September 2012 interview with MTV Hive Corgan said, "I’m starting to write new songs for the next ‘Pumpkins album... have a title for the next album but I won’t tell. It’s going to be a cruel record. Vengeance is mine."
On Monday, Corgan tweeted this:
Excited to announce today's our 1st official day of writing for new SP album. Wish us luck!— Billy Corgan (@Billy) March 25, 2013
