The Smashing Pumpkins Announce Tour With Interpol and Stone Temple Pilots

The World Is a Vampire Tour begins in July

The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a North American tour in support of their new album, Atum. The band’s The World Is a Vampire Tour will feature support from Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots, and Rival Sons. Find the Smashing Pumpkins’ tour dates below.

In a statement about the tour, the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan said:

I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong. That’s what The World Is a Vampire is about. Bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.

The band’s tour title, of course, gets its name from the opening line on the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness song “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.” The Smashing Pumpkins have said that Atum—out May 5—is a sequel to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and also 2000’s Machina/Machine of God. Hear a new Atum song, “Spellbinding,” below.

Stone Temple Pilots shared their latest album, Perdida, in 2020. The record The band features original members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz with vocalist Jeff Gutt, who took over after the deaths of singers Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington.

Interpol released The Other Side of Make-Believe last year.
