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 Smashing Pumpkins are releasing two albums within a year of each other starting with MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY on December 9th, to be followed by DAY FOR NIGHT in 2015. Billy Corgan says, ''For those interested in sound, think: ''guitars, guitars, guitars and more guitars'' but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic.'' He continues: ''Manning the boards is producer Howard Willing, with whom I first had the pleasure of working with during the Adore sessions.'' Playing drums throughout MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY is Tommy Lee.
