Those hoping to land the currently vacant guitar spot in The Smashing Pumpkins are in for some fierce competition. Last week the diamond-certified alternative rock band launched open auditions for that role, which has remained empty since Jeff Schroeder exited this past fall.

According to an update shared by the group yesterday, January 16th, over 10,000 people have thrown their hat in the ring for the role, with a staff of 8 people currently working full-time to assess potential candidates to land the spot.
