Alt-rock icons The Smashing Pumpkins are recognized for their synthesis of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth, psychedelia, and dream pop. The sound is layered, driven by swirling, distorted guitars that churn beneath lead singer-songwriter Billy Corgan's angst-ridden lyrics. One of the most visible bands of the '90s, alongside grunge rockers Nirvana and Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins achieved mainstream success with classic releases "Siamese Dream" and "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" featuring mega-hits "Tonight, Tonight" "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" and "Today," to name a few. After a foray into electronic rock on "Adore," Corgan issued a final pair of efforts before initiating a group hiatus that ended with 2007's "Zeitgeist." Along with an ever-changing lineup, he continued to record under the Pumpkins moniker before reconvening most of the original lineup for a 2018 reunion tour and 2020's synth-heavy "Cyr." Most recently, the single "Beguiled" arrived in September 2022 as the first track released off 2023's "Atum: A Rock Opera in Three Acts." Along with being the Pumpkins 12th studio album, "Atum" was the group's third concept album, a spiritual sequel to both 1995's "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" and 2000's "MACHINA:The Machines of God."
