The Smashing Pumpkins Announce North American Tour With Stone Temple Pilots, Interpol, Etc., Debut New Track “Spellbinding”


Multi-platinum alternative rock outfit The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a North American leg of their ‘The World Is A Vampire Tour‘. Support on select dates of the trek will come from the likes of Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons. Artist pre-sales begin today, March 28th at 12:00pm local time. The general onsale will follow this Friday, March 31st at 10:00am local time.

The Smashing Pumpkins mastermind Billy Corgan had the following to say of this upcoming run:

“I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong. That’s what The World Is A Vampire is about. Bringing back that sense of community.

If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.”
