The reunited Smashing Pumpkins are recording their first album in seven years.
The Smashing Pumpkins are reunited. But that's not all. The music act also is back to the studio, recording their next album, which also is their first set ever since calling it quits with their swan song, the 2000's "Machina: The Machines of God."
The Grammy-winning rockers confirmed their comingback in a short post on its Web site, stating in it that they will record the album with Roy Thomas Baker, the famed English producer best known for his work with Queen.
In fact, there's no word on whether or not the four original Pumpkins are taking part in the reunion. So far, it's only frontman Billy Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin making up the lineup.
