    The Smashing Pumpkins have announced the North American leg of “The World is a Vampire Tour.” Kicking off in August, the 26-date trek features special guests Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots, and Rival Sons.

    Tickets are available via StubHub, where orders are 100% guaranteed via Stubhub’s FanProtect Program. StubHub is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.

    “I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong. That’s what The World Is A Vampire is about,” Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan said in a statement. “Bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.”


    Along with music, each date will feature professional matches featuring wrestlers from Corgan’s  National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).

    Smashing Pumpkins initially brought “The World is a Vampire Tour” to Mexico City earlier this month, and will take the tour to Australia in April with special guest Jane’s Addiction.

    The tour dates come in support of Smashing Pumpkins’ new three-part rock opera, ATUM. Act 1 was released last November, and was followed by Act 2 in January. The third and final act will surface on May 5th. In anticipation, Smashing Pumpkins have shared a new single called “Spellbinding,” which you can stream below.
