The Smashing Pumpkins released a new album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun., last month via Martha’s Music (under exclusive license to Napalm Records). Last night they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform two songs on the show’s outdoor stage: “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” on the broadcast show and “Knights of Malta” as a web-exclusive performance. Watch both performances below.

Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 is the band’s first album since Corgan reunited three-fourths of the original lineup, bringing back into the fold guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin (bassist D’arcy Wretzsky is not taking part), as well as longtime guitarist (since 2007) Jeff Schroeder.

The album includes the previously shared new song, “Solara,” which the band performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in June and for which there was also a strange video, along with “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts),” a single shared when the album was announced. Then there was a Halloween-themed video for “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” that featured the band in a haunted house as part of a radio contest and guest starred Mark McGrath (of Sugar Ray). They also shared another advance song from it, “Knights of Malta.”

Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 is the first Smashing Pumpkins album in 18 years to feature the three original members and was recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, CA with producer Rick Rubin. Corgan has been the only constant in the band over the years, but when they formed in 1988 the lineup included Iha, Chamberlin, and Wretzsky. That lineup stayed in place until Chamberlin left the band in 1996 and then Wretzsky departed in 1999, with Iha leaving in 2000.

Corgan issued this statement in a previous press release: “Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha, and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house. And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.”

Corgan released, Ogilala, a new solo album under his full name, William Patrick Corgan, last fall via BMG.

This was a really good live video while it still existed. Stinks that google seems to be part of the dying old gaurd as well.. how is it that we have so much access to so much and i can no longer watch a PUBLICLY broadcasted video because Google, our master, has decided to burn it for some reason or another. Amazing and terrifying times we live in, its not like they have any consistent standpoint on copyright views, its just a matter of who ask
(referring to the erasing from the internet of the knights of malta on jimmy kimmel at the time of this posting)

Beyond that, google used to be an amazing search engine not long ago when i got the search results i wanted. now google knows better then me and they know “what i really should be seeing” as opposed to what i actually am searching for and they give me that… thats why i use duckduckgo now, it might not be as good as google use to be but its a lot better then what google is now as far as giving me what i want, bit of a rant that got off topic but im tired and terrified of this digital gettosization.
