Social Distortion will release a greatest hits disc in the fall. The cd will boast a whole bunch of the band's greatest hits, but there will also be one new song on the disc. The song, "Far Behind," has been a staple on the band's recent tour, and fans that have heard it say it "rawks." The greatest hits disc drops in the fall, and a cd with all new material should be out sometime next year.
Well, it's not the new cd you've been waiting for, however a Radiohead ep will be released in May. The ep, Com Lag (2+2=5a), was originally released in Japan as a companion disc to Hail To The Thief, but it will finally see light of day in the U.S. on May 8th.

There's still no official word on the release date for the brand new Radiohead disc, although it will most likely drop near the end of the year.

The newly reunited Smashing Pumpkins will release a cd titled Zeitgeist on July 7th. The big Mystery regarding the project was who (besides Billy Corgan) was involved in the reunion. It has been pretty well publicized that drummer Jimmy Chamberlain is involved, but what about D'Arcy and James Iha? It turns out that neither of them will be a part of the reunion, which isn't all that shocking, especially considering rumors that have swirled over the years that Corgan played D'Arcy and Iha's parts on all the band's studio records. Iha recently confirmed that he is not involved in the reunion, revealing that he hasn't spoken to Corgan in "several years." Iha says that he is busy working on a new solo record and wants no part of the ol' Glory Days.
