A new album could, therefore, be in the pipeline. As fans wait to find out more, here's a look at some of the band's previous work with five key songs from the Pumpkins' back catalog.
This track is from the Smashing Pumpkins' debut album, "Gish," released in 1991. Frontman Billy Corgan is joined by original bandmates James Iha, bassist D'Arcy Wretzky and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. Released at the same time as Nirvana's legendary "Nevermind," "Gish" only scored moderate success on its initial release.
