SMASHING PUMPKINS Complete Recording New Album

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the SMASHING PUMPKINS announced plans to record two new albums and it looks like they're moving right along with their plans as Billy Corgan recently revealed the first album, "Monuments For An Elegy" featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee on drums, is done. Corgan told Loudwire: "So it's done now, 'Monuments For An Elegy', that is; and what a relief." The album still has to be mixed.

Corgan also shared his thoughts on the recording process. He said, "I'd most hoped to convey the joy of creativity, and how with any artistic endeavor, when undertaken with friends, makes the journey worthwhile. So let me say for the record… that 'Monuments For An Elegy' was one of the easiest and most pleasurable albums I've ever made."

He added, "Having heard the album through for a first time in this, a finished form I was taken aback. 'It's indescribable, that,' I told Shredder [SMASHING PUMPKINS guitarist Jeff Schroeder], meaning that what I heard was unlike anything I could recognize. Yet none of it was unfamiliar, either… big choruses, probing lyrics, odd twists of melody and guitars, guitars for days. Strange indeed."

SMASHING PUMPKINS is hoping to release the project soon.

Songtitles set to appear on "Monuments To An Elegy" include "Tiberius", "Being Beige", "Anaise", "One And All" and "Stomper".

The group is also aiming to release a second album, "Day For Night", in 2015.
