Frontman Billy Corgan has announced the completion of the Smashing Pumpkins‘ new album via a post on the band’s official website. The new album, titled ‘Monuments to an Elegy,’ will serve as the follow-up to 2012′s ‘Oceania’

In the post, Corgan goes on to describe the album as being filled with “big choruses, probing lyrics, odd twists of melody, and guitars, guitars for days.”

He adds, “I sang all the harmonies (and invented a few too I didn’t know were possible) on ONE AND ALL, and post that we wandered into the night, convinced all was done; yet today returned for a review of sorts; adding assorted bleeps and blurps, and even one new vocal harmony, but that was it.”

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee was recruited to man the sticks for the album, which does not have a set release date yet. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming Smashing Pumpkins album.
