Smashing Pumpkins - Teargarden By Kaleidyscope

The new Smashing Pumpkins, which reformed and released Zeitgeist in 2007, are working on an epic 44-track album that is being released one track, and one 4-track EP, at a time. The most recent song, from the ridiculously titled Teargarden By Kaleidyscope, to hit the Internet, “Freak,” is by far the best song the new Pumpkins have recorded. The “reunion” album was a complete failure and sounded as disjointed as an album could with leader Billy Corgan’s ego flooding the work.

Now, it appears, the new band may actually be on to something. Following the first installment of the 11-EP epic album, the second installment leads with “Freak,” and shows that Corgan may still have a few gems left up his sleeves. As the song hearkens back to earlier, much more beloved, works like Gish and Siamese Dream.

As previously reported here at grantruby.com, U2 cancelled their 2010 North American leg of their enormous 360° Tour due to frontman Bono’s emergeny back surgery. Well, the band has now rescheduled those dates, including Salt Lake City.

Keep a hold of your tickets, because U2 will perform at Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah on May 24th 2011. Tickets for the original date will be honored, and there are some tickets still available through Smith’s Tix.
