With the absence of James Iha in the reunion and bassist D'arcy Wretzky's static response, The Smashing Pumpkins have to find other way to fill in the gap. Two names have allegedly been revealed to become the band's new members.
Ginger Reyes, a bassist from all girl punk band Halo Friendlies, has been reported joining the band along with The Lassie Foundation's ex guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The Smashing Pumpkins' publicist Mitch Schneider however said that there has been no official recruitment for the two and that they are still considering some 'things'.
Off the new members recruitment, the band's remaining members Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin are set to release "Zeitgeist" on July 10 and have their first reuniting performance in Paris on May 22.
