Smashing Pumpkins, The World is a Vampire, Hordern, 18th May 2023 by Mandy Hall

The Smashing Pumpkins were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s, often cited as one of the most influential acts in alternative rock.

From the instantly recognisable harmonic riff of Cherub Rock and the haunting Disarm from their breakthrough album, 93’s Siamese Dream to the majesty of Tonight, Tonight and the savagery of Bullet With Butterfly Wings from the 10 times platinum monster, 1995’s Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness which was the best-selling double album of the 90’s, through to the bands most recent releases 2018’s Shiny and Oh So Bright and 2021’s Cyr which featured the singles, Solara, The Colour Of Love and Wyttch, The Smashing Pumpkins have been a mainstay in the rock world for over three decades and in 2023 will release their most ambitious work to date, Atum: A Rock Opera In Three Acts.
