The Smashing Pumpkins are set to embark on a summer tour this year. Last week, the band announced the 26 dates of the World Is a Vampire tour.

Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons will join the band for select dates.


Billy Corgan, the lead vocalist, said in a press release, “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.”

General on-sale tickets were released on Friday.


The band celebrated the tour by dropping their new song “Spellbinding.” This came after the group released the first two acts of their album ATUM earlier this year. The final act will be out on May 5. The Smashing Pumpkins have stated that ATUM is a sequel to the two albums Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and Machina/Machine of God.
