THE SMASHING PUMPKINS recently sat down with Zane Lowe for an exclusive interview on Beats 1 on Apple Music to discuss reuniting, their new LP, touring together for the first time in 18 years, and more. Tune in to hear the conversation in full on Monday, September 17 at 10:00 a.m. PST.

Earlier this summer, the newly reformed lineup shared the first glimpse of their new music with the LP's lead single "Solara". "Solara" is available now to stream and download now via all digital services. The track's dreamlike music video was directed by Nick Koenig and expands on the theatrics of the band's catalog of iconic music videos.

Last week, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS wrapped their monumental "Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour", which sold over 300,000 tickets across North America and sold-out arenas, including The Forum, United Center, and Madison Square Garden. Produced by Live Nation, the tour was the band's first in nearly two decades to feature Corgan, Chamberlin and Iha, alongside Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates and keyboardist Katie Cole.

This fall, the band will perform in London, United Kingdom, and Bologna, Italy, before returning to Chicago, Illinois for a special 30th-anniversary series performance for WKQX's "The Nights We Stole Christmas".

Formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1988, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS released their heralded debut album, "Gish", in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's four-times-multi-platinum "Siamese Dream" and 1995's 10-times-platinum "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness".
