The Smashing Pumpkins have added a countdown clock to their website, prompting rumours of a reunion tour.
The clock will finish at 5pm (GMT) Thursday and has the option to join their mailing list. Billy Corgan has been hinting at a reunion for a while, and in January he posted a picture of himself, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha in the studio. Corgan later confirmed he was recording with Rick Rubin, although it has not been confirmed if Chamberlin and Iha would be part of the project.
