Smashing Pumpkins reveal new album title

Billy Corgan's band confirm release date

Smashing Pumpkins have revealed the title of their first new album since 2000’s ‘MACHINA/The Machines Of God’.

‘Zeitgeist’ is set for release in the US on July 7, according to the band’s Myspace site.

The current incarnation of Smashing Pumpkins features only two original members, Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin. The remaining line-up of the band is as yet unknown.

The album’s release date is unusually a Saturday, presumably so the release date can be presented as: 07.07.07.

Smashing Pumpkins have also announced two more European festival dates for the summer, in Austria and Switzerland. They now call at:

Nuremburg Nürburgring (June 2)

Nuremburg Zeppelinfeld (3)

Austria Nova Rock Festival (15)

Switzerland Greenfield Festival (17)
