Smashing Pumpkins form Killers/RATM supergroup for TV gig; Corgan poses with MLB mascots


Earlier this week Smashing Pumpkins announced a kinda-sorta surprising co-headlining tour with Marilyn Manson, but Billy Corgan’s collaborations aren’t stopping there.

Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Pumpkins performed “Drum + Fife,” the latest single off last year’s Monuments to an Elegy, and did so with a new-look band: Killers bassist Mark Stoermer, and drummer Brad Will, formerly of Rage Against the Machine.

Check out video of the performance below.


If you scroll deep enough, also be treated to not only the full run of Smashing Pumpkins + Marilyn Manson tour dates, which includes a July 28 show at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, but also a pic of Corgan posing with several Major League Baseball mascots, via Consequence of Sound.

The photo was taken by Red Sox mascot Wally The Green Monster, which is probably worth a separate post of its own, and ties in to Corgan’s appearance on Good Morning America.
