MÖTLEY CRÜE's TOMMY LEE To Play On New SMASHING PUMPKINS Album

SMASHING PUMPKINS mainman Billy Corgan has revealed via the band's web site that MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee will lay down the drum tracks on all nine songs that will appear on SMASHING PUMPKINS' new album, "Monuments To An Elegy", tentatively due in 2015.

"Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the SMASHING PUMPKINS album," Corgan wrote on the site. "Shockla-locka-boom. Yes, that T Lee for all 9 songs of 'Monuments To An Elegy'."

It is not presently clear if drummer Mike Byrne, who joined SMASHING PUMPKINS in 2009, is still a member of the band.

Corgan recently announced that he plans to complete the recording of two new PUMPKINS albums, "Monuments To An Elegy" and "Day For Night", by August 15.

"Monuments To An Elegy" will come first, with Corgan writing about the sound of the new disc, "Think guitars, guitars and more guitars."

Corgan also revealed the tentative track listing for "Monuments To An Elegy". It is as follows (all titles subject to change):

* Being Beige (World's On Fire)
* Anti-Hero
* Tiberius
* Run To Me
* One And All
* Drum And Fife
* Dorian
* Monuments
* Anaise

"Monuments To An Elegy" is being produced by Howard Willing, who first worked with SMASHING PUMPKINS during the "Adore" sessions

The PUMPKINS released their last studio album in 2012: "Oceania", which entered The Billboard 200 chart at No. 4, earned the No. 1 spot on the Independent Albums chart and garnered vast critical acclaim.
