There has been plenty of back-and-forth regarding Smashing Pumpkins' reunion, and Billy Corgan has revealed that “the truth will win out in the end.”

The frontman took to Instagram to update fans about what he's been working on, which includes lyrics and finding the “robust tones buried beneath my oft-quoted nasal whine.”

He then goes on to thank fans for their fidelity and support, saying he “could go on about what’s false or misrepresented,” but he says that “the truth will win out in the end and is best represented by proof that can be seen and felt (like new music, videos, action, and of course shows).”

Corgan also explains that discussions are in the works for international shows, in case you were wondering. See his latest Instagram update below.


The moose on my wall says, ‘Good morning!’ For those that wonder, this is a carved, wooden, Black Forest work dating to the late 1800’s. Which I have up in my kitchen. I’d originally bought it for @madamezuzus 2.0 but obv changed my mind (as Pisces are won’t to do). Wrote another new song yesterday evening, at the moment affectionately titled ‘The Goodship Disaster’ (I don’t think it will last). So working on lyrics for that now. And have been singing each day to find the robust tones buried beneath my oft-quoted nasal whine. I hope everyone is well, and appreciate all the positive feedback and photos I receive here. Your fidelity is valued and appreciated, and we are certainly lucky as musicians to have such support. I could go on about what’s false or misrepresented, but time says the truth will win out in the end and is best represented by proof that can be seen and felt (like new music, videos, action, and of course shows). And to that I can report discussions are in the works for our first international shows, so keep asking because we are listening. And lastly, if you haven’t yet, please subscribe to my new @spotify playlist (WPC’S MUSIC MACHINE). On the advice of the friend I’m going to treat it more like a radio station playlist and add a few and subtract a few as I go, so I’ll do that today. The link to the playlist is in my IG BIO Lots of love, WPC @smashingpumpkins @chamberdrums @jamesihaofficial @jjjschroeder @jackbass89 #smashingpumpkins #wpc
