Corgan: No new albums by the Smashing Pumpkins to be released
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan told the Chicago Tribune that the Pumpkins will not release any more new albums, in part due to the negative reception of 2007's release, Zeitgeist.
Corgan stated that the band will continue releasing singles, citing the lack of consumer enthusiasm for albums in general in this mp3 age: "People don't even listen to it all. They put it on their iPod, they drag over the two singles, and skip over the rest."
Corgan was full of vitriol for the band's critics as usual, denying that the band reformed for money, although paradoxically (sarcastically?--this doesn't seem likely) referred to the group as "Pumpkins Inc."
He also offered no kind words for former bandmate James Iha. "The real story [behind the split] was Iha was driving me out of my mind. He was so negative. The guy literally drove me insane."
