“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,” says The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan. “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”
The tour is set to expand to other countries in the near future.
Additionally, The Smashing Pumpkins released a brand new single today called “Spellbinding.” The song is from the forthcoming and final ‘Act 3’ of the band’s triple-album rock opera ATUM, set for release on May 5. ‘Act 3’ will come with a special edition boxset featuring all 33 album tracks plus 10 additional unreleased songs, and is available for pre-order now HERE.
