The Smashing Pumpkins

The Smashing Pumpkins are an alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois. They were formed in 1988. The band released their debut album Gish in 1991. It received largely enthusiastic reviews from the media. However, the band became more famous to the public with their later albums Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. The band has undergone many lineup changes. However they are still considered one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s. Their diverse sound usually contains elements of various music genres. These include psychedelic and progressive rock, and electronica. In 2018, three out of four original members reunited for the first time since 2000. They went on a worldwide tour, with its first leg taking place in the US this summer. Their latest album was released only a few weeks ago.
