Smashing Pumpkins — “Tiberius”, from Monuments to an Elegy

The Smashing Pumpkins have released a three-song sampler EP from their forthcoming new album, but it is only physically available if you pre-order from an indie record store! Excellent news. What a great way to support these retro outlets. And what better way to buy music?

The sampler contains: “Being Beige,” “One and All” & “Tiberius.” See the accompanying videos to this post if you want a listen.

And here’s more info:

In support of their eighth studio album Monuments to an Elegy, available December 9, The Smashing Pumpkins will play a series of special shows in select cities around the globe.  …

The special lineup for these performances will include Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine) on drums and Mark Stoermer (The Killers) on bass joining The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan and Jeff Schroeder.  “We’re absolutely thrilled and humbled to have Brad and Mark helping us out with these shows,” said Corgan “and if our rehearsals are any indication they should be one-of-a-kind.” …

Yesterday, Vice.com premiered the new track, “Tiberius” which they called “intimate” and “expansive” while Noisey.com declared the track “sounds like a return to form—a nod to the beloved Pumpkins sound of old with a modern twist.”  Monuments To An Elegy features Tommy Lee on drums and was recorded in Chicago.  The album is produced by Howard Willing, along with Corgan and Schroeder.  Monuments to an Elegy is “an album within an album,” part of their ongoing work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope (with Day For Night as the project’s last work).
