  • Smashing Pumpkins revealed that EMI plans to remaster and reissue the band's back catalog, starting with Gish, Siamese Dream and Pisces Iscariot this fall. They will also head into the studio next month to begin recording a new album titled Oceania. Details here.
  • Loud Loop Press has the scoop on Chicago's own Empires advancing to the next round of a contest that could get them on the cover of Rolling Stone. You can vote for the band here as they continue to compete.
