Billy Corgan Discusses ‘Herculean’ Work By Tommy Lee On New Smashing Pumpkins Album

Billy Corgan posted the following blog on SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com:

A quick update from sunny Los Angeles: visa vie the Herculean efforts of one T Lee, drum tracking on 3 songs has been traversed; with ANAISE (pts 1 + 2), MONUMENTS, and ANTI-HERO now all in the fold, and TIBERIUS on deck. And though the art of this sort of recording leaves little to report on (“let’s try that one again, if you please”), I can attest to a number of smashed heads and imploding snares, unlike anything this reporter has ever seen. This includes the fracture of unbreakable sticks, and the death of microphones incapable of handling such concussive effect. To quote Herr Howard, “there is loud, and then there is Tommy.”

So stay with us on this journey, as there are many, many exciting days to come…

    I’m very much looking forward to this. I really wish it was coming out in 2014.
