Smashing Pumpkins To Release New EP

Smashing Pumpkins are to release a brand new acoustic EP 'American Gothic' to coincide with their forthcoming UK Arena shows.

The four new acoustic tracks 'The Rose March', 'Pox', 'Again, Again, Again (The Crux) and 'Sunkissed' were recorded during a short break in touring in Los Angeles and all produced by Pumpkins Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlain.

Corgan says of the EP: “We have always regretted not recording more in between tours because albums have never caught the full story of the group...it's sort of ‘Zeitgeist’ plus, (the title of which) is "continued comment on the state of our country."

'American Gothic' will be available from February 11, and the short tour kicks off in Glasgow on February 12.

They will play:

Glasgow, SECC (February 12)
Nottingham, Arena (14)
Manchester, MEN Arena (15)
London, O2 Arena (16)
