Watch The Smashing Pumpkins Perform On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Fresh from the release of their excellent new album Cyr, The Smashing Pumpkins performed the record’s title-track on the December 1 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, James Iha and Jeff Schroeder joined forces remotely for a really great video of the track, with cool visuals interspersed between the band members’ performances.
Exclusively speaking to Kerrang! about Pumpkins’ latest studio effort, frontman Billy enthused: “I think Cyr is the result of us getting our confidence back that we can do whatever we want to do, and we’re not beholden to a certain style or idiomatic approach. As long as we pick a lane we’re excited by, good stuff will come out of it. I’m working on a song right now that sounds like it could have been written in 1993. And if we recorded it that way people would be, like, ‘They’re back!’ No, we never went away… But if you were to sit in a room with Jimmy and I for 12 hours, our discussion is always, ‘How do we get to the next bus stop?’ That’s all we ever focus on.”
