When THE SMASHING PUMPKINS hit Chicago in 1988, the world had never heard a band like them. They fused rock, pop, shoe-gaze, metal, gothic, psychedelia and electronica into a kaleidoscope of sugary melodies, distorted guitars, bombastic orchestration, eloquent song technique and unwavering hooks. When they formed, their sound was different, iconoclastic and entirely new - and it still is today. As a result, they have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won two GRAMMY® Awards, two MTV VMAs and an American Music Award.
Their catalogue includes the platinum album ‘Gish’ , the quadruple platinum album ‘Siamese Dream’ , the Diamond Award album ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness’ , the platinum album ‘Adore’  and the gold album ‘Machina / The Machines of God’ . In 2018 they embarked on one of their most successful tours ever, the “Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour”, followed by “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / Lp: No Past. No Future. No Sun”. Meanwhile, 2020 saw the release of the band’s eleventh album and latest double album, ‘CYR’. THE SMASHING PUMPKINS are as productive as ever.
