Billy Corgan Addresses Smashing Pumpkins Reunion Rumors

By Radio.com Staff

Billy Corgan took to social media this afternoon to clarify the state of a potential Smashing Pumpkins reunion.

“We’re back in contact again,” he begins. “I’ve been in communication with D’arcy for the first time in 16 or 17 years, it’s awesome to have my friend back. So we’re all in communication, which as I said not too long ago, my primary interest in the old band was us having good relationships again. We were a family for a very long time, and it just makes life easier to communicate.”

Does this signal a reunion of the original lineup? Not yet, according to Cogran. “We’re not at that point,” he said “and I think that’s a good thing. We’re not rushing to something, we have to of course repair some things between us, and see what’s out there for us, if those opportunities are even there. We’re not interested, nor have we ever been interested, in just going out to play because there’s a big stack of money there. Of course the business is part of what goes on, but the band was never about that, and if the band should ever be again in that form, in some iteration, obviously because there’s other people involved, it would be about the music.”

“There’s excitement there that surrounds the idea that maybe there’s the possibility that we will get back together, but until you hear it coming from my mouth that the band is getting back together and we will play dates, my primary concern is the family relationships of the band that are ultimately so much more important,” he concludes.
