LYRIC PREMIERE: Smashing Pumpkins' New Album Oceania



The Smashing Pumpkin's seventh studio album Oceania is set to come out on June 19th. The much-anticipated album was recorded at lead singer/guitarist Billy Corgan's private studio in Chicago with his bandmates: guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist/vocalist Nicole Fiorentino. Though the band lineup was different from past Pumpkins albums, Corgan raved: "Jeff, Mike, and Nicole have all made significant contributions to the tone and texture of Oceania, which is an album that is unlike any I've ever made."
