The Smashing Pumpkins‘ reunion seems to be edging closer and closer with photos from a photo shoot leaking.
Frontman Billy Corgan has stirred rumours of reunion tour and album posting pictures from the studio with former guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin.
It’s rumoured that the band is working with Rick Rubin on their comeback album with both Corgan and Chamberlin posting pictures from his Malibu studio and house online.
Now, photos have leaked (via Alternative Nation) of a photoshoot featuring Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin alongside guitarist Jeff Schroeder who joined the band in 2007.
Former bassist D’arcy Wrestky previously confirmed that she would not be returning to the band after they, “decided to go with a different bass player.”
“I know this is a huge disappointment for me, as well, but it’s not going to happen [with me],” she said.
Schroeder has not previously played bass in the band so it’s unknown whether there will be a touring bassist or whether he will move into the role.
Nothing regarding the return of the band has been confirmed just yet but a photoshoot suggests that we may not have long to wait until all is revealed.
