With the recent departure of long-time drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, alt-rock legends the Smashing Pumpkins have decided to hold open auditions in hopes of finding a suitable replacement.

Auditions will be held on April 10th in Los Angeles. Interested candidates should sent bios, videos, and other information to [email protected].

In other Pumpkins news, slightly off-centered front man Billy Corgan has apparently been collaborating with Mark Tulin, bass player for the 60’s pysch-rock band The Electric Prunes (of “I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night” fame) on some new demos. Whether or not this collaboration will lead grade A Pumpkins material, or more Zwan-like quality tunes, remains to be seen, but the results are bound to be interesting.
