Smashing Pumpkins Out In Time For Halloween

The Smashing Pumpkins are going to leave the studio long enough to

play England's Reading Festival on August 26. They've been busy mixing

their upcoming double album, tentatively titled Melon Collie

due out on October 24. So far our spies have managed to glean the

names of a few of the songs. There's the acoustic "Jupiter's Lament,"

as well as "Muzzle," and "Ode To No One." The Pumpkins also

contributed a tune to the Joy Division tribute album that will be

released by Virgin on September 4.
