The Smashing Pumpkins Chronology
The Adore Era

1997 - 1998 - 1999

Similar to past history for the band, the summer of 1997 brought an end to the rock-filled sounds and era of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. The Pumpkins had finished their huge world tour and were now well rested to begin recording for a new album.

Billy had been telling reporters, journalists, the media, and anyone else who would listen that Mellon Collie was the last album that people would "know the Smashing Pumpkins as they know them now." He basically meant of course that everyone should expect a drastic change in the band's sound. Billy told people that he had a "certain sound mulling around in my head" and always wanted to get a jump on the electronic age that he foresaw.
