As the Smashing Pumpkins gear up for their reunion in 2018 with or without D’arcy Wretzky (at this point who cares, right?) the band is offering up some fun teases and contests on social media.
Today, the band posted lyrics from their 1993 single “Today” along with the caption “Back on the road… NYC x CHI x LA. #SP2018 #today” and just yesterday posted the cryptic caption “2.15.18 – http://www.smashingpumpkins.com” again with Siamese Dream lyrics.
Prior to those posts the band announced contesting surrounding the band’s iconic truck for NYC, Chicago, and Los Angeles — If you see the SP truck in your neighborhood and post a photo on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #SP2018 #entry you will get a chance to win something special from Yamaha Guitars. Keep an eye on @smashingpumpkin on Twitter.
