The Smashing Pumpkins have announced the The World Is A Vampire US tour.

Alongside the tour announcement, the band have released their brand-new, synth-laden single Spellbinding, lifted from the third and final act of ATUM, which is scheduled to arrive on May 5. 

The 26-date run will see the alt rockers travel across North America, with the first show taking place on July 28 in Las Vegas. They'll also make stops in Salt Lake City, Mountain View, Charlotte, Toronto and more before finishing up on September 9 in Noblesville, Indiana. 

Joining the Smashing Pumpkins on the road on various dates will be special guests Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons, as well as some of the world’s biggest champions from the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), who will be competing in most cities.

Speaking of the tour, frontman Billy Corgan says: "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. 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".

Pre-sale kicks off on March 28 at 12pm local until March 30 at 10pm local. General on-sale will commence on March 31 at 10am local. For more details visit The Smashing Pumpkins website.
