This is where I really wanted to go musically. I was a fan of Billy Corgan’s music for years, so to be able to work with him on his vision and help take the band to a new place is incredible. It’s great to be part of something that you can be completely passionate about.

@eric_weclowski any second. Just saw press release. Big announcement with it too— Billy Corgan (@Billy) September 27, 2012
One of the great Smashing Pumpkins fan sites Hipsters United updated today they are changing how they run the site:
After today, we will no longer be updating the Hipsters United blog.
HipstersUnited.com will continue to exist as a portal archiving our old posts. New podcasts may be posted intermittently, and the HU Twitter account will remain a voice for the site, but Hipsters United will no longer be committed to coverage of Smashing Pumpkins ‘news’ on a continuous basis. The@PumpkinsNews Twitter account will accordingly be deleted, as will our Facebook page.
You can read the full post here.
As a fellow fan site we know the time it takes to constantly report on the news and even visitors to our website would notice we only update now during more frequent times of relevant news.
Social media has allowed us all to get information about the Smashing Pumpkins as it happens from various sources and even the band themselves, websites like ours, Hipsters United and others will one day be more of a ‘catalogue’ of past events.
We want to say a massive thank you to Hipsters United, they took reporting on and defending the Smashing Pumpkins to a new level with all fan websites and are glad they aren’t going away for good, it’s a change and change is good.
