It’s back to work for Smashing Pumpkins.

The band just started recording a 33-song new album that will serve as the sequel to the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness double album as well as the two installments of Machina.

Smashing Pumpkins released a blurry pic of a drum set on social media with the caption, “Songs are written, lyrics too…so now it’s just record-record-record.”

Last year, frontman Billy Corgan confirmed the 33-track sequel was in motion, saying the material was shaping up to be “kind of a rock opera.”
