The ever-enduring Smashing Pumpkins’ have a new album out in a week, Monuments to an Elegy, and the album is now available to stream in full over on iTunes. Check it out here.
Monuments to an Elegy is the legendary alternative-rock band’s tenth studio album following 2012’s modestly well-received Oceania. Frontman Billy Corgan enlisted Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee for the new album after enduring further lineup woes surrounding production of the record, a constant, highly-publicized problem for the over 25-year-old band. Corgan has managed to maintain a healthy level of public hype around Monuments to an Elegy regardless, thanks in part to the release of a number of popular singles including “Drum + Fife” and “Being Beige.” Listen to “Drum + Fife” below:
