Smashing Pumpkins to play one Texas show in fall, free song downloads

The current incarnation of The Smashing Pumpkins will soon begin their fall tour having just completed a series of dates in Japan and South Korea. The sole Texas date of the tour is September 20 in Austin at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheatre. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, August 20 at 10am. With four days off before their Kansas City show on September 25, a Houston date is a logistical possibility, but so far no announcements have been made.

Since announcing the ambitious 44 song recording project known as Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, The Smashing Pumpkins have released a total of 6 new songs including the vinyl-only instrumental track “Teargarden Theme.” The 5 remaining songs are available for free from the band’s website. The ongoing project is expected to take 5 years to complete and will culminate in the release of limited edition boxed set. The band has already released the first in a series of EPs each containing 4 songs along with collectible bonus items.

Throughout the summer, The Smashing Pumpkins offered a rare opportunity for a select number of fans to experience part of their soundcheck. Although there was never a set time for the ‘soundcheck sets,’ at many of the shows the first 20 or so people in line were invited to watch the band run through at least 5 songs including several new songs yet to be released. There is no guarantee that the Austin show will include a soundcheck set, but the group’s most dedicated fans won’t mind taking the risk of showing up a bit early.
