Kim Monroe’s Music Minute March 2nd

As rumors continue to grow about a Smashing Pumpkins classic line-up reunion, Billy Corgan has taken some time to reflect on his own personal past.  In 1991, the Pumpkins released “Gish” but it was quickly overshadowed by Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” and Pearl Jam’s “10.”  Corgan recalls falling into a deep suicidal depression, but out of those feelings he ended up writing one of the band’s most iconic songs, “Today.”

Fans of Disturbed may not have to wait too long for new music.  The band returned after a 4 year hiatus in 2015 with the record “Immortalized” and have been on the road pretty much non-stop.  Singer David Draiman says that once they wrap their current tour, they intend to take a break and spend time with family, but they have been working on an acoustic EP that may come out this year.

Soundgarden are expected to be in the studio this year working on the follow up of 2012’s “King Animal.”  In the meantime, the guys are set to release a new remixed version of their album “Ultramega OK” on March 10th.  Soundgarden will be on the road this year as well, including several festival dates starting in Tampa on April 28th.
