Smashing Pumpkins fans hoping for a reunion of the original members appear to be getting what they want—almost.

According to Blast Echo, 3/4 of the band’s classic lineup is set for a reunion tour but without original bass player, D’arcy Wretzky.

Wretzky made the big reveal to the website via text message, apologizing to fans that she will not be involved and explaining that she only found out the previous day that the band went with a different bassist. 

She also said that the Smashing Pumpkins are planning to launch a reunion tour featuring Billy Corgan, original guitarist James Iha, original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, and a yet-to-be-determined bass player beginning in July.

The Smashing Pumpkins and Corgan have yet to issue a statement in response to Wretzy’s comments and have not announced a reunion tour.
