New Pumpkins for your Friday! Apparently this will be featured on a new release coming out. No word is it will be a L.P. or E.P. either a new album with talented rockers that haven't recorded together in nearly 20 years is pretty damn cool. Lets us know what you think of "Solara" on Facebook @ Rock 949 Omaha!
I think it's a good radio jam from them. Not too long, catchy riff, enough distortion, and heaviness to take us back, but still hoping Billy and The Pumpkins have more up their sleeve for the new release. More guitar, not the biggest fan of Billy vocals on "Solara", it feels like they get in the way a bit, but normally I don't mid Billy's voice. I just don't want this to be another SP, Billy type album, I want to hear a big difference in what's going on musically than anything else from the past 18 years. We'll wait ans see. Below yo can check out Billy Corgan on "It's Electric!" with Lars. They talk new tour, new music, and gettin' the gang back together. Don't forget you can see The Pumpkins @ the CLink August 20th!
