Do you have a punishing mate stuck in a 90's pub cover band, who thinks they go pretty good on the old six string??

The Smashing Pumpkins might have the dream gig for them!

“The Smashing Pumpkins are in search of an additional guitarist,” they wrote on Twitter over the weekend. “The application process is open to anyone who might be interested.


If you know every tiny intricacy of “Cherub Rock,” “Hummer,” and “Bullet With Butterfly Wings?” Are looking for work and can free up your schedule to head around Europe and North America, send your resume and any relevant material to [email protected].

The job is open because Jeff Schroeder, who was a member of the band from their 2006 reformation all the way through 2023, recently departed the group.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, make sure you get your application in quickly as the Pumpkins have just a few months to find a new guitarist. They kick off a European tour with Weezer on June 7 in Birmingham, England.
