The Smashing Pumpkins have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history and sold over 30 million albums. Formed in Chicago in 1988, they released "Gish", their influential (and platinum) debut in 1991, which was followed by more platinum and multi-platinum albums including the nine-time platinum "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness" and the four-time platinum "Siamese Dream", as well as the platinum certified 1998 album "Adore". The pivotal group's many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation.
The Pumpkins returned in 2007 with their gold-certified and acclaimed sixth album "Zeitgeist", which entered the charts at Number 2 in the U.S. and in the Top Ten internationally. Since their triumphant return to the stage in 2007, the Pumpkins have headlined some of the biggest events around the globe including the Reading Festival, Rock Am Ring, and the V fest. In 2008, the band was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk. Their first post-major label release was the song "Superchrist," issued via the Guitar Center CD Fresh Cuts Vol. 2. They subsequently recorded the song - the modern rock hit - "G.L.O.W." for the Guitar Hero World Tour game, marking the first time a band has recorded a new song exclusively for the franchise. In November 2008, the band released their first live DVD, "If All Goes Wrong."
In December 2009, The Smashing Pumpkins began releasing "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope", a 44-song work with songs being released online one at a time for free (4-song physical EPs will be made available as the songs are released). The group's BILLY CORGAN has said the new music "harkens back to the original psychedelic roots of The Smashing Pumpkins; atmospheric, melodic, heavy, and pretty."
