Chief pumpkin smashers The Smashing Pumpkins have announced their sure to be smashing reunion album. It goes by the title, ‘Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun’. Just rolls off the tongue, huh?

It features original members Corgan, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, with guitarist Jeff Schroeder. No bassist. Although on tour, the bassist position will be fill by Jack Bates.

New single, ‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’, is out now and is actually alright. Sounds a bit like Feeder. You can watch the lyric video here. And you can see the band live in the UK when they play Wembley Arena on 16 Oct. The album itself will be out on 16 Nov.
