Smashing Pumpkins launch mysterious countdown clock

Credit: Scarlet PageThere's an announcement coming from Smashing Pumpkins land this week. The '90s alt-rock vets have launched a mysterious countdown clock on their website, which will conclude this Thursday, February 15 at noon ET.

The announcement will most likely have to do with the heavily rumored Pumpkins reunion, which, according to a leaked photo shoot, will feature original members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, as well as latter-day Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder. Original bassist D'arcy Wretzky previously announced that she won't be a part of the alleged reunion, leaving it unclear as to who will handle four-string duties.

Corgan, Iha, Chamberlin and Wretzky founded Smashing Pumpkins in 1988. Wretzky left the band in 1999, and Iha followed suit in 2000. Chamberlin left and rejoined the Pumpkins several times before returning as a touring member in 2015.
