SMASHING PUMPKINS To Perform On 'Tonight Show With Jay Leno'

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS will release "Astral Planes", the fourth track of their epic 44-song "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope" project, this Friday, April 16 via the independent Amoeba Records' web site.

The swirling, psychedelicized song will first be available for free download on (in the left-hand corner under "Breaking News") and then, later that day, available for free download via along with three previously released tracks "A Stitch In Time", "Widow Wake My Mind" and "A Song For A Son". The site also offers a widget enabling fans to host the songs anywhere on the web.

"Astral Planes" is the final song to be issued for "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope Vol.1: Song For A Sailor", the first of the eventual 11 EPs to be sold in record stores. "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope Vol. 1: Songs For A Sailor" is set for official release on May 25 through Martha's Music/Rocket Science Ventures. This very limited-edition collector's EP will be packaged in a beautiful collector's silk-screened wooden box. Each box will contain a four-song CD, a vinyl 7" and a hand-carved obelisk.

The release of "Astral Planes" comes one day before "Record Store Day," which the band will celebrate with a free performance in Los Angeles.

The first 250 fans who pre-order the "Teargarden…" EP on Saturday, April 17, will receive the limited-edition black light poster as well as a wristband giving them entry into THE SMASHING PUMPKINS performance from Amoeba and Urban Outfitters Space 15 Twenty later that day. The pre-order is exclusive to independent record stores. By pre-ordering the EP, fans will be guaranteed to own the EP and will immediately receive a collector's edition SMASHING PUMPKINS black light poster, while supplies last.

While in Los Angeles, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS will perform "Widow Wake My Mind" on NBC's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Tuesday, April 20.
