Smashing Pumpkins Begin Writing New Album -

Smashing Pumpkins kingpin Billy Corgan has revealed that the current incarnation of the alt-rock outfit have officially started writing the follow up to 2012's 'Oceania' release.

'Excited to announce today's our 1st official day of writing for new SP album. Wish us luck!'

He told MTV Hive of the follow-up to 'Oceania':

"I'm starting to write new songs for the next Pumpkins album. I got a lot going on. I have a title for the next album but I won't tell. It's going to be a cruel record. Vengeance is mine."

Corgan has previously said that he hopes to have the follow-up to 'Oceania' out by December 2013.
