The Smashing Pumpkins have reunited with original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin.
Chamberlin will join the band on tour this summer as they tour with Marilyn Manson on The End Times Tour, as well as a number of acoustic gigs inbetween. The drummer replaces Robin Diaz in the ever revolving Pumpkins line-up.
This marks Chamberlin’s third stint as Smashing Pumpkins’ drummer, having first joined the band in 1988 and leaving in 2002. He later returned for four years between 2005-2009. Maybe it’ll stick this time around?!?!
Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan says, “We’re thrilled Jimmy’s back in the saddle this summer to drive a super high-octane set, and it’s nice to see the stars aligning around Smashing Pumpkins anew.”
Could an official Smashing Pumpkins reunion be in the works? Dare to dream friends. Dare. To. Dream.
