Alternative rock luminaries The Smashing Pumpkins have been pushing the boundaries of modern music since their inception 32 years ago in Chicago, IL.

With over 30 million physical albums sold, the multiple GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band will release their latest epic double album ‘CYR’ on November 27 through Sumerian Records. CYR not only sees the Pumpkins push their sound into new exciting territory, but connects their past, present and future in unimaginable ways that signifies the dawn of a new era for the genre defying band.

We sat down with The Smashing Pumpkins legendary drummer Jimmy Chamberlin for the Everblack Podcast to talk about the new album CYR. We discussed the double-album’s synth-heavy direction, how they have been staying busy creatively this year, their plans to release a follow-up to their ground-breaking album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, his solo material and if we will see them down under again once day.
