The last album Smashing Pumpkins released was Monuments to an Elegy in 2014. This was the first of two records to be made under the band’s new deal with BMG, the second of which will be recorded following the band’s spring tour. Originally, when the contract was signed, the new album was to be entitled Day For Night, but now that is not the case. The new title and other details have yet to be announced.
Liz Phair is an American songwriter who began her career in the early 1990s by self-releasing audio cassettes under the name Girly Sound, before signing with the independent record label Matador Records. Her 1993 debut studio album Exile in Guyville was released to acclaim; it has been ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Ten years after the release of her debut, Phair’s fourth album, Liz Phair, was released on Capitol Records and her music began to move in a more pop rock-oriented direction. Phair has sold nearly three million records worldwide. Her latest album, Funstyle, was released on July 3, 2010.
The Smashing Pumpkins is an alternative rock band from Chicago, IL formed in 1988. Formed by frontman Billy Corgan (lead vocals, guitar) and James Iha (guitar), the band included D’arcy Wretzky (bass guitar) and Jimmy Chamberlin (drums) in its original incarnation. The Pumpkins have a diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of heavy metal, psych and prog rock, and electronica in later recordings. Corgan is the group’s primary songwriter. The group built its audience with extensive touring and their 1995 follow-up, the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart. With 20 million albums sold in the United States alone, The Smashing Pumpkins were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s. However, internal fighting, drug use, and diminishing record sales led to a 2000 break-up. In 2005, Corgan took out full-page advertisements in the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times to announce that the band would reunite.
