Bassist Paz Lenchantin (ex-A PERFECT CIRCLE) has left ZWAN, the group fronted by former SMASHING PUMPKINS singer Billy Corgan, and will be dedicating her time to PAPA M, a long-running project founded by ZWAN guitarist David Pajo. "My experience with ZWAN has been great but it is time for me to move on to new projects," Paz wrote in a recent online posting.
