Smashing Pumpkins drummer Mike Byrne has opened up about the band's forthcoming album Oceania, and while speaking with MusicRadar.com he said it has a very "Led Zeppelin-vibe."
"At the beginning of the record we have a real one-two punch with real furious drumming," he explained. "We [have] a song called 'Quaser,' which has flam fives all over the thing. We spent all night honing the parts and didn't do a single take, just ironing out every fill."
"The next day we came in and did the check your tones take and by the time I was finished they called me into the control room and we'd done it on the first take. That was the happiest surprise of the three weeks," he added.
The track list for Oceania, due June 19:
"My Love Is Winter"
"One Diamond, One Heart"
